Hey all, new to the forum and new to Mac. Been a PC guy for too long! I am moving around pretty comfortably in the Mac OS but I am having some issues I hope someone can help with. I have a wireless (G) network in my office which I use to print to a main printer in a different room. I can connect to the network but anytime I try to print from my MacBook it says the printer is busy and just spools the print job for later. My Book is used but well cared for, it is (N) enabled as well. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
QUOTE Thanks

Can you try to connect the printer directly to the Macbook and print a test page? See if that works?

We need to know what version of OSX is on your Mac. Whats the make and model of the laser printer..there may not be Mac drivers for your printer.
