I have a macbook, and am using airport and trying to print from my Epson - Pm-d800 printer, however I always get the message "Printer is offline". Any advice on how to fix up the printer to print wirelessly would be most welcome.

As far as i can gather, it is installed. According to system prefs/printer it is in use and the default printer. There is only one printer connected, and it works fine when connected to the macbook usb. Just wireless I have a problem with.

Do you get a window come on screen that allows you to choose which driver to use? I had a similar issue with my Lexmark, so I looked at the available drivers and there were 2 with the same name and IP. I selected the first, which worked. Tried the second, nothing, so you may find something similar.
Worth a look.
