Hi all,

I've had 2 printers that in Snow Leopard wirelessly printed. Now, in Lion, under all the same settings, they just pause and won't print. What do I do?

Use Snow Leopard.

Could be that the drivers for your printer are not yet supported in Lion.

Agreed. It could be the drivers. Also, file a bug report.

I was able to print wirelessly when I selected the "generic" driver as opposed to the printer-specific driver -- that might be something to try if you want to keep using Lion.

How do I do that?

Not sure if the exact same terminology is used in Lion, but this is how you do it in SL:

System Prefs --> Print / Fax --> (select printer) --> Options & Supplies --> Driver

There should be a drop-down box where you can select the generic driver.

Tried that. Still didn't work.
