    I have read a few posts which say it is impossible to print from a windows PC that is attatched to aitport.

    Please tell me this is wrong?!!?

    I have a mac, and my flat mate has a PC, we have spent the entire day setting up our wirless net, wireless music (all of which works fine) but i cant get windows to print.

    is there anything i can do?

    I guess i would have to set up print sharing, and he would have to print via my mac?

    Just been reading, and have found a way, you have to manually create a new Printer port (LTP) and use the IP address from airport.

    This all goes great, until it then gives a list of printers, and my HP photosmart is not on the list, even when i manually find the drivers, it wont accept it.

    Does anyone know what other compatiable drivers i could use? or a workaround?

    Thanks
