    I can't seem to set up my printer (Brother HL-1435) to print wirelessly. Plugging into my PowerBook (X.3.8) directly with USB causes the printer to show up in Printer Setup Utility (PSU) and everthing works great - but when I choose Rendezous to connect over Airport nothing shows up in the drop down sheet.

    I have the PowerBook hooked to the network via ethernet and Airport on to stream iTunes and print.

    The instructions aren't very helpful - they just say choose Rendezous from the PSU program.

    Thanks

    Are you sure it's a supported printer? To be honest, I had to do almost nothing to get my printer (Epson C84) to work via Rendezvous/Bonjour. I think all I did was go to a print dialog in a program, and click on the choose printer pull down, and it was pretty much right there under Rendezvous (maybe I had to click on some kind of add printer option inside the rendezvous list, but otherwise quite easy).
