    Hi there. I'm waiting to switch my Wife's Dell to a MacBook Air. In the meantime, I just purchased a Canon MX310 all in one printer. I set it up by connecting a USB cable from the printer to my Airport Extreme.. Of course, it was no problem for me to find the printer and connect to it with my MacBook Pro.

    Now I'd like to give my Wife the ability to print to this device as well.. I'm just not familiar with how to do that. Would anyone mind pointing me in the right direction?

    Thanks in advance!

    Exactly the same way you did with the MBP. Same OS, same drivers, everything.

    Windows typically have problems printing wirelessly. Driver issues...

    His wife's computer is a PC


    See if this helps:

    Pretty much you are adding it as a local printer with a TCP/IP port instead of a regular printer port.

    Makes you take for granted how easy being on a mac is ;)

    Pardon my obtuseness. :eek: I read the OP a little too quickly, glossed over the "waiting..." and "...in the meantime" parts.
