    Hi guys,
    I have an HP Deskjet 930c. It is connected to my dell(Sorry Guys, need to play Doom III ) and I unplug it and plug it intomy iBook every time i print off it. Could I plug it in to my Airport Extreme and print wirelessly with my iBook and use the Paralell port on the Dell at the same time?

    I'm say with every confidence that you can NOT use both parallel and usb ports at the same time. What would be best is to just hook up the printer to the AE and print over the network from both computers assuming they are both on the network.

    More USB questions

    I'm trying to connect my Powerbook to my old Canon BJC-250 printer and having some driver issues. I purchased a parallel port to USB connector cable but unfortunately the Driver software is provided on a mini-cd that does not fit into the powerbook self-load CD drive. I visited the Canon site – no help there. Where can I download the driver for my IEEE 1284 cable? Is this a mission without worth?

    Any help would be great!
