    For anyone in the know, does anyone know if I have a MF printer hooked up to a Airport Extreme....will I be able to use the scan function of the MF printer. My gutcheck is telling me no....as the local Windows driver will want to see it on a USB port ??? but I'd love to hear from any chaps who might have had experiance with this in a ~network~ setup...

    The print server on all Apple AirPort Base Stations does not support multifunction printers. You would need to either purchase a network multifunction printer from the start, or you would need a USB multifunction print server to use MFPs without networking capabilities.
