    I have just recently given up on PCs/Windows and bought a Mac. With my PC I printed on my Canon Pixma MP130 through a Linksys Wireless G Print Server with no problems. With the Mac I can see the print server and I can use the printer without problem via USB, but I can't seem to put the 2 together so that I can print wirelessly. Any ideas?

    I am on a MacBook Pro (Intel) with OS X Tiger

    when you're adding the printer from the mac, make sure you go to the "IP Printer" section. unfortunately, i don't have a wireless router that has a print server :(

    Adding an IP printer will allow me to connect with the server, however when it asks for printer make and model my printer is not available. There are no GIMP drivers for my printer and it won't let me use the drivers that were installed from the disk that came with the printer.
