    I have bucked the household Wintel trend and bought an iMac. I'd like to use our Kyocera printer which everyone else connects to via our WiFi ( linksys ) but my iMac doesn't see the device ( internet yes ). I installed bonjour for windows on the primary machine and it doesn't see the printer either. I have checked printer sharing everywhere to no avail. I am running OS X 10.5.6 and the rest of the machines in the house are Windows XP. Your help and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Hey man, in order for you to use the printer, they are certain things you may need to get, first, the IP address for the printer. Actually, Have you gone through the add printer section of the System Prefences? Let me know and i'll show you how to work it.
