    I have a 13" Macbook that, all of a sudden, cannot find my HP 4280 printer on my network. The Printer is plugged into my 21" iMac, and I'm using a Linksys router. I never had any trouble until recently, and when I open up the "Printers and Faxes" option in System Preferences, my printer isn't listed. When I click "add a printer", it's not there.

    I have cleared my printers and reset everything, but it hasn't fixed it. I can plug it in via USB and it recognizes it, but it won't find it via airport. Any recommendations?

    Do you have the latest printer driver installed?
    You might want to check the manufacturer's site and get the latest driver and update it first

    Thanks MacDawg. I tried that yesterday, to no avail. This is blowing my mind.
