    I Have a BT wireless Hub. which is connected to my PC and macbook OS X using wireless. I have just added a new Printer RX560 I would also like to go wireless with it but dont know where to start, (it is mac and wireless friendly )I was lucky when I got my macbook as it picked it up straight away. I am more familiar with my PC but on strange grounds with my laptop at the moment but learning. Any ideas.

    ok, is it usb attached to you pc or ethernet connected to ya hub?, yourll need to install drivers on ya macfi its not included already and make it you default in printer utilities. then in sharing in system prefs, on mac and pc select printer sharing, this should be all you need to do, also if its attached bu usb to the pc you will need that on to print from your laptop.

    Wait, so I'm confused. You have a wireless hub / gateway / whatever, and your two computers get internet from it wirelessly, right? Do you want the printer to print wirelessly without being connected to either computer, or do you want to connect it to one computer and print from it wirelessly on the other?

    If the first, you need some sort of wireless print server, unless your hub has one in it already, or perhaps use bluetooth (using Epson's adapter), although that will require you to be <10m away. If the second, as mentioned, I guess you could set it up on the Windows computer and then share it.
