    Sorry if this is repetitive, but I searched the recent topics for this answer...

    I have an HP 6110 Officejet. It's connected to my wireless network via Linksys printserver. I can print to the HP with the PC Notebook that is in the house, but cannot though my Powerbook. I "burped" the printer to get the IP settings, and tried to enter them directly with no joy.

    Thoughts? Thanks.

    It's been my understanding that wireless printer sharing doesn't really work on anything other than Apple Airport stations. My MacBook Pro won't wirelessly print to a shared printer on a computer behind my Linksys WRT54GS router either. Try hooking the Powerbook up via Ethernet and see if it prints that way.

    thanks. I was able to connect USB (no brainer), but wasn't able to connect when I went Cat5 style. So, I don't know what the answer is... Linksys won't give me any support (they gave me some "Mac" disclaimer - punks!)

    I'm hooked up to my other printer wireless (HP 6800) with no problems.

    Any other ideas? Anyone? Bueller?
