    I have an iMac G5 and a Dell. They are connected to the internet with AirPort Extreme. The printer is connected to the Airport via USB. The Mac prints fine, but the Dell isn't communicating with the printer. Any suggestions? I've tried bonjour and it didn't work. Thanks.

    Make sure you're running bonjour for Windows. It should just show up when you browse the network.

    It does show up. It just says that the printer is not communicating.

    What type of printer?

    Edit: Did it ever work at one time?

    It is a lexmark Z611. It works fine and always has. Just can't share it
