    I got both a converted machine to Lion and a new one with Lion.

    I use Wifi connection

    1. Connect the 8500a to the Wifi network
    2. Leave it on
    3. Go to printers and add a printer
    4. It should show your printer
    5. Once selected it will ask you to install the drivers
    6. Say yes
    7. Ready to go


    1. Use Preview
    2. Include Network scanners
    3. Select your printer

    Hope this helps
