    Here's my problem...

    I have an Airport Express base station that I have my cable internet and usb printer pluged into. I have two computers using the internet (through this base station) and supposidly the printer too. One is an iMac G3 400Mhz running 10.2.8 while the other is my iBook G4 1.2Ghz running 10.4.2. The base station is administered by the iBook. The shared printer (a Epson C84) works fine when I print using my iBook, however when I try to print using my iMac it works about 10% of the time if that. It seems the only way it will work is when the iMac goes through my iBook to print (using printer sharing instead of Rondevious/Bonjour). What is stopping the iMac from printing through the Airport Express directly? Apple's website says that printer sharing is supported in versions 10.2.3 and later.... so what is the deal.

    If anyone has a similair problem or a solution that would help me out greatly...

    Thanks, I thought it might be the driver.... I'll go download it once the epson site starts working again. Well, if anyone else has any suggestions....
