    I have an AirPort Extreme base station, and iBook, and a Win. XP box *barf*. I was wondering if it was possible to share a printer on the USB port of the AEBS with the hard-wired Xp box. Also, I have been having random drop-outs of my AirPort signal, sometimes resulting in the base station not being recognized by the Admin Utility. I have to reset my AEBS to fix this. (By the way, this never happened with my snow base station.)

    Thanks,

    If I remember correctly, the AE base station uses cups printer sharing, so if the XP box supports that, it should work.

    For your second question about the dropped connections to the base station, there is a firmware update that you can get that should fix that.
