    Hello Everyone!

    I hope there's someone out there that can help me. Here's my setup.

    I have comcast internet that comes in through a box. This box is connected to an Airport Extreme that is located in my basement. This Airport Extreme lets out a wireless signal that is available throughout most of the house. In one of my first floor rooms - I have a Brother printer. It has wireless connectivity capabilities but I was unable to get it to connect to the wireless network. So, I purchased an Airport Express which picks up the Airport Extreme and allows me to connect the printer to the network through a wire. My MacPro is located on the second floor of my house - and is connected to the internet through an ethernet wire that travels from the basement. I want to connect this computer to my printer. How can I do this?? I'm running Leopard.

    Thank you,

    Does the printer not show up in the list of available printers? I have a somewhat similar setup and it shows up for me every time.
