How do you guys set up the free pinter from apple ( HP Deskjet 3050 ) with your MBA for wireless printing? I downloaded a printer driver via Apple Software update and i was able to print with USB cable connected. But i can't print wirelessly. I have a linksys router with WEP security.

You will need to get the printer on your network first. The manual (http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02497809.pdf) has instructions. It looks like you'll need to configure it through some HP software while it's connected via USB.

I got my HP 3050 before I bought my MBA so I configured it using Windows. The setup utility asked me to configure the wifi on the printer. I had to configure while USB connected and now I can print wifi from MBA and Windows.
