    I have OSX 10.6 installed and I currently have my broadband connected by Ethernet connection. Airport seems to connect to my wireless router even though this is plugged in. HPSETUP appears as a device in the WI-FI drop down, however to print I need to select this from the dropdown. Can my iMac's wifi connect to this by default rather than my broadband connection?

    Thanks

    you could but I think it would be best to connect your printer to your router via wi-fi.

    and disable the wi-fi on your mac!!
