    macbook pro wireless printing issues
    Hi everybody,

    Just taken the plunge and bought my first mac, a macbook pro running Snow Leopard.

    Can someone please tell me how to get my mbp to talk to my netgear wgps606 wireless print server? I connected to my netgear wireless router almost straight away (after a slight issue with the passkey) but am unable to set up the netgear print server because the setup disk wont play on my mbp !

    I did some research and found instructions from the netgear site for the wgps606, but this involved pinging the server from the mbp...which i dont know how to do wirelessly !! is there a method of setting up the mbp to do this?

    Can anyone help ? Please?

    Specs:
    17" MacBook Pro, 2.5 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, not unibody
    One important thing: go into System Preferences > Sharing and make sure Printer Sharing is enabled. When it is, try to print something. A dialog should come up. In the dropdown menu next to "Printer:", select "Add Printer...". Usually my network printers are under "Default" in the window that comes up.

    Hope that helps.
