    I have a problem I've been working on for over an hour.

    I have a uni MBP that has wireless internet and printing through an airport express (just internet and printing, not using Airtunes feature).

    I bought a MBA last night and am trying to get it to work as well. It works just fine as far as wireless internet, but the wireless printing simply will not work. I have the printer listed in my MBA and all airport express utility settings seem to be A-OK, it just will not print wirelessly from the MBA. The printer queue just gives me the old Error 300: The printer does not respond.

    Ideas?

    What's the Printer make and model? Is the printer printing through the MBP, if it is the MBP has to be up
    Have you rebooted the MBA as well as the MBP? Reboot the modem and Router too!;)

    its a canon ip90v

    i figure out what was wrong...even though it was showing on both computers, i had to install it fresh on the MBA (showed up as a bonjour printer)

    all is well now, thanks:)
