    so i have a hp psc 1350 printer which i can connect to my macbook USB drive and the computer recognizes it right away and i am able to print with no problem. once i connect it to to my airport extreme and then i go to add printer it cannot find the driver, it does show the printer in the list. But the driver for it is not on the drop down list. and for some reason i dont have printer utilities in my utility folder.

    Go to System Preferences --> Print & Fax.

    Click the + and it'll search for local printers, including Bonjour. Select it, and it'll install.

    It sees the printer though?

    Try selecting the "Gutenprint" driver if there is an option for this. I had to choose that driver because the default one failed to work for me too.

    Works 100% fine with that driver though.
