    Does anyone out there use Airport Express(AE) as a wireless print server???
    I have a TiBook and my wife uses a Thinkpad t-40p. Any thoughts on whether those 2 could be hooked up with the AE??

    This is for an Airport Extreme, but it should work the same way.

    Provided your printer is USB compatible you should have no trouble setting this up.

    The biggest problem may come from the Windows end. I had to jump through a few hoops since our Canon's i550 installer didn't let you create a new port - you'll need to create a new "local" Internet printing port (they look something like IP_192_168_1_1). I got around this by installing a fake printer using the Windows built-in drivers, which let me create the port. Then I installed the Canon i550 to that port, and finally deleted the fake printer.

    It works quite well once it's set up.
