    Hi,

    I just bought a Printer Canon MP970.
    I bought this one because it was the only multifunction printer from Canon that was usable over an Ethernet network.

    I attached a chart of my network.
    It's quite basic.
    I have a PC an a Mac.
    The Mac is connected to internet thanks to a wifi connection (Linksys wireless router).
    I bought also a print server from Linksys.

    Now the problem:
    I cannot see the printer (or the print server) from the Mac.
    I tried all the options in the Printer Setup Utility. None of them seems to be working.

    Any clue?

    Thanks,

    Canon drivers for models that have wireless/ethernet built-in can connect via network. Canon drivers for models that only have USB can only do USB. You can look for third-party CUPS drivers here:

    (CUPS drivers can use all the comm protocols included in OS X.)

    Ideas for using Linksys print servers:
