    Hi all,

    I've had 2 printers that in Snow Leopard wirelessly printed. Now, in Lion, under all the same settings, they just pause and won't print. What do I do?

    Use Snow Leopard.

    Could be that the drivers for your printer are not yet supported in Lion.

    Agreed. It could be the drivers. Also, file a bug report.

    I was able to print wirelessly when I selected the "generic" driver as opposed to the printer-specific driver -- that might be something to try if you want to keep using Lion.

    Not sure if the exact same terminology is used in Lion, but this is how you do it in SL:

    System Prefs --> Print / Fax --> (select printer) --> Options & Supplies --> Driver

    There should be a drop-down box where you can select the generic driver.

    Tried that. Still didn't work.
