    I saw those also, but the large list of printers is for the older Airport Express and the later one has very few printers on it. Does Apple really not publish a list but advises you to make sure that it is a supported printer?

    No supported list published by Apple

    After an hour on the phone with Apple support, no there is no official supported printer list. "Your printer may not be supported." Well is there a list of supported printers? "The list changes so often that Apple hasn't maintained a list" (working from memory, not word for word.)

    I gave up with this and apple and started playing. Fairly quickly got a MP750 multifunction to work with printing only for my MBP. A windows laptop on the same network has only intermittent success so far though.

    I would suggest that you connect the printer to the express and follow the instructions to connect using the standard (latest) driver. You can always reverse everything.

    Strangly enough my printer (USB, Brother DHC-130C) showed up in the Airport Utility Printers Tag. Some time later: "USB Printers: None"

    No idea how that is possible.... and no idea how the Express Station once recognized the printer.
