    Hi all!

    Is there a way to do wireless printing with my current setup? Here is it:

    • iBook 600 running OS X 10.2.5
    • Epson C60 printer w/USB connection
    • Terayon cable modem w/USB out port
    • Linksys wireless DSL/cable router

    If not, what would I need to do wireless printing? Thanks!

    I'm not sure what your cable modem's USB port is for - to connect to a computer without using a network port? Anyway I have a Linksys Wireless print server that works well for most printing, but as it connects via the parallel port it is not really any good for photos (as you spend too long sending the data and get banding on the print).

    is the cable modem capable of acting as a print server then connect via usb to the printer. that seems most logical.

    I use a SMC Barricade router that has a built-in print server, and it works great for wireless printing. I have also used the Hawkings print server-$60-with good results..

    With both you will need GimpPrint.
