    Hey
    I'm having the following frustrating problem:
    we have a wireless network with a USR 5461 MaXG ROUTER.
    On that router there's an HPLaserjet 1300 connected by a USBcable

    The Windows PCs can print to this printer by setting the printer port to 192.168.2.1/printers/My_Printer in the printer installation menu

    But how do I setup the printer with OS X?
    I've recnetly (last week) switched to OS X so I'm not so familiar yet with the OS-X way of network setup..

    Any help?

    I think it would be under Shared Printers in the Print Utility (Applications > Utilities). I'm not on my Mac right now so I can't double check.

    nope, can't find it there...

    the USR ite doesn't even mention the setup-options for OSX, it only talks about windows X, Me etc...

    so far I found I need to use the IPP-option (internet printing protocol)
    if I print a testpage with XP I also see the following info:
    Printer name: \\http://192.168.2.1:1631/My_Printer
    Port-names: http://192.168.2.1:1631/printers/My_Printer

    but I don't know if it's really usefull...
