    I have a Mac, a windows laptop, and a windows pc. The Windows PC plugs into the netgear via cable, and the mac and laptop are using the netgear wireless router. I have a printer that I use to use via my Airport.

    My question is, my mac is connecting via wirelessly to the netgear router. How do I set up my Airport so I can use my printer? I have airport plugged, but there is an orange blinking light on it. Any suggestions?

    i recently set up a small network, constisting of two iMacs and a Windoze PC here at home using a Netgear modem router, all i did was connect my HP C4180 printer to one of my Macs, turn on Printer sharing under Prefs and it works fine, even the PC prints fine to it although i had to blindly muck around on the Windows machine to get it to print.

    sorry just reread your post, i do know that Windows also has printer sharing on it

    not sure if this info is of any use to you
