    Printing wirelessly
    I am a college student, so I print out a lot of papers. I have installed iPrint client on my macbook, which allows me to print wirelessly. I am trying to figure out how I can wirelessly print out my papers without having to log on to my school's computers to print. Any suggestions?

    You don't need iPrint to print wirelessly, you just need to share whatever printer you have on your network and then select it from the print options.
    System Preferences -> Print and Scan -> Select the Printer in question -> Sharing settings
    Unless you are trying to print from the school's computers in which case, at the school I attended they required you to pay for printing, so that would be a bottle-neck for you if that is the case.
    But otherwise, you again just need to set up the printer and share it.
    Hope this helps.

    So is your "real" question..."How can I print wirelessly (at your school)...without having to pay for it?"

    Do you own a printer, or I guess I should ask... is there one in your room at school? By the way, I'm sure you understand why schools charge for printing. If they didn't, students would be printing out everything from comic books to the "World Book Of Knowledge" - all 35 volumes.
