    Unhappy Time capsule and printer
    I have just set up my new Time Capsule and created a home network. i have a PC desktop and a MacBook Pro. The network is working fine and I can connect to the internet on both computers. My problem is with my printer. I have a Canon IP4200 connected to the USB port on the Time Capsule. Both computers recognise the computer and have it as the default printer but whenever I try to print I get a message that the printer is offline. To me it is connected and on line (tried switching it off and on) but I cannot print. Before the time capsule the printer worked fine on both computers with a USB connection. What do I need to do to get both computers to print????? HELP!!!

    I noticed I had the printer listed as being on my Macbook and since I have fixed this it now prints to the printer wirelessly (Yaaaaah!!!!) but the PC desktop still tells me the printer is offline. I have reinstalled the printer, downloaded Bonjour for Windows and updated Windows but it still does not print. I know this is a Mac forum but can anyone help me????
