    Hello everyone
    I just spent two evenings in a row to get my HP 5850 wireless printer to work through my airport extreme basestation with my PB. I also have my internet connection through the Basestation (cablemodem through ethernet cable at LAN port). Now, the printer works perfectly as long as the cablemodem is not connected. As soon as I plug the cablemodem into the basestation, the printer is no longer recognized ("Can't establish connection to..."), but the internet works. Anyone have a clue whats wrong? :confused:

    Another question: The WAN connector on the basestation: shouldn't I be able to connect to the internet through that?? I tried, but only get a connection if I connect my cablemodem to the LAN port.... ? :confused: (again)

    Thanks a lot for your help !
