    Specs:
    15.4" MBP Core2 Duo, 2.33MHZ, 160GB HD, 2GB RAM, ATI X1600 256 MB
    It's a Canon S250. It's 3-4 years old. It's listed as a supported printer for OS/X, but I haven't found any configuration that will work with it. Linksys says that because I can print from other wireless machines that it's not an issue with the router.

    I've tried everything so I'm done - now I've given up and I'm shopping for a printer.

    Good luck on the new printer. Printers can be absolutely frustrating somedays.

    Printing Issues
    I was having similar issues printing to an HP PSC3180. Everytime I would print I would get a NT_LOGIN error or some such nonsense. At the time, I was using a common user name and password which had a space in it. I eliminated the space in the user name on all three machines that I print from (2 Mac/ 1 XP) and now I can print fine. I can't seem to find the exact driver I need, but I found one for a similar HP printer and all is now well.

    It took over 6 months of playing with things to get this to work including Bonjour, etc.

    Someone else mentioned the same thing about the name. I reset my user name so it had no space on all computers. I even setup the same user name and password for my Windows box as I had on my Macbook.

    Bonjour just wouldn't work either. Forget why now, but I just couldn't get it to work.

    But that was then - this is now. And now I'm loving my Macbook and able to print.

    Now I get to go get my wife a Macbook. One less windows computer in the house. Life is good.

    My HP 7300 printer that is connected to a WinXP machine/network worked out of the box using a hard network cable from my MacBook.

    My problem is that it prints sssssssooooooo slow. 8 pages from the internet or a .pdf take over an hour. Any suggestions?

    I don't know of anything that will speed your printing up other than to check the manufacturer's website.

    Also, I did a forum search on "slow print" and found these two links that may be helpful.

    Hope those two links help and good luck the HP. Let us know how it goes.
