Hey everyone,

So I brought a new MFC b/w printer to do all my heavy paperwork and wanted to use my GF color inkjet printer and network it through airport express. plugged it in, I can see it in the printer preferences but cannot find the drivers to make it work. Downloaded the so called HP packet driver from Mac no good. Any ideas? Do I need to connect the printer via usb first or am I doing something wrong.
QUOTE Thanks

Try this and good luck:-

Software for HP Deskjet Printers - Mac OS X v10.3 and v10.4 (Universal)*

Make sure the printer is connected by USB, then install software, go to Systems Preference and see if you can then add the printer.

Cool that worked thanks...

Another question....how do I connect this printer via Airpoirt express (dual band). It see's it, but when I try to print it doesn't print, says fatal connection error. Is there a special configuration to make it work?
