I attached my Imac to the Airport and the printer to the Airport. It's a Canon Pixma MX700. The airport utility sees the printer but when I try to print, the Imac does not see the printer. I hardwired the Imac to the Airport because I assumed the connection speed woud be better. Could this be the problem? I am able to get on-line from my laptop PC so I know the thing is working. I have not tried to print from the laptop.

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer? If you haven't since connecting the printer to the AEBS, that would be your problem. The iMac communicates with the printer differently when it's connected directly than when it's connected to the Extreme.
