Hi,

I have a HP PSC 1401 printer installed and being shared on my windows box in my office, and I have my Macbook Pro in my living room that I want to be able to print from. I can see the printer when I go to add it, but when it comes down to a driver I don't have that printer to select. The funny thing is, that same printer used to be connected locally to the USB, and I of course installed the driver then, but now that I want it networked, it won't show up in the list. I'm stumped, what can I do?

Thanks

Derrick

Check out the Networking Printers FAQ:

Networking Printers FAQ

Some drivers are USB only, so you basically need to find a driver that doesn't care about how the printer is connected.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
