    OK, long, detailed post - sorry.

    My objective is to allow all my computers (win and mac) to print to my Canon printer.

    I have a cable modem connected to a D-Linksys Router

    The D-Linksys Router, through house wiring, goes to:

    1) the xbox upstairs
    2) study connection A
    3) study connection B
    4) study connection C

    In the study:
    Connection A: I have a Linksys 5-port Hub.
    Connection B: unused.
    Connection C: my new Airport Express.

    Study connection A: On the 5-port Hub, I have:
    - Dell Desktop Win XP Pro
    - Dell Laptop Win XP Pro
    - MacPro

    The MacBook is wireless and working through the Airport Express. I have my Canon ip4300 connected to the USB port on the Airport Express and I can print from it perfectly.

    Now, I want to be able to print to the Canon from all the other machines. How can I do this? (I've previously had the Canon direct connected to both the Dell Desktop and the MacPro, and it works fine when direct connected.)

    Again, lots of detail, but I'm hoping there's a way to share this printer across all the machines via the network.

    Thanks, Todd

    I should have done a bit more research before posting. I'm figuring all this all out. Apple stuff makes it easy. Thanks.
