    I can't seem to figure out how to add a printer, everything on the printer is setup. I can see the printer in my network (see photo, it's the EXROX-ALLINONE), but when I add it, it won't print anything, just waits and waits. I do know the internal ip for that printer if that helps.

    I don't get how I can see the printer when I add it, but it just won't print. :confused:

    you selected the proper drivers?

    Click it in that list, the "name" and "location" should fill in automatically, then you have to select a driver in the "print using" dropdown list.



    I did it with a Brother HL-1230 which doesn't even have 10.4 drivers and it worked (using HL-1240 drivers).

    Yes, I solved it.

    It automatically added in the driver, which I have the CD to, but it still didn't print. I had to manually add in the 192.168... number. Which was weird since if I can see it in the network, I don't see why I had to do that.
