    Ok, so I archived and installed as a result of my previous problem, but now my printer which is connected via USB to my Airport Extreme is not being found by the printing preference. Under Airport Utility, it recognizes the printer, but when I go to "Add Printer" it isn't found. What am I doing wrong?

    Make sure you're advertising your printer through Bonjour. Also make sure your Mac is connected wirelessly to your AEBS and not another wireless router (such as a wireless cable or DSL modem), otherwise you will not have access to the printer.

    I may not be advertising through Bonjour. How do I do such a thing?

    With the Airport Utility - I can't remember exactly where, though.
