    How do you guys set up the free pinter from apple ( HP Deskjet 3050 ) with your MBA for wireless printing? I downloaded a printer driver via Apple Software update and i was able to print with USB cable connected. But i can't print wirelessly. I have a linksys router with WEP security.

    Thanks

    You will need to get the printer on your network first. The manual has instructions. It looks like you'll need to configure it through some HP software while it's connected via USB.

    I got my HP 3050 before I bought my MBA so I configured it using Windows. The setup utility asked me to configure the wifi on the printer. I had to configure while USB connected and now I can print wifi from MBA and Windows.
