    Can anyone help? I have the above new Imac and also a PC in another room. I have a Lexmark All in One X9575 Printer which works well with my PC on Wi Fi connection. I ran the latest Drivers for the printer on my Mac, but although it finds the printer via Wi Fi, when I try to print from my Mac after I have used it on the PC it doesn't find the printer. I wonder if it is not possible to share PC and Mac on that printer, as there seems to be some kind of issue. I have no problem if I use a cable on the Mac with it instead, but this is of course no use as I need it to share with the PC. Any answers greatly appreciated.

    Uninstall the printer from both the Mac and PC and then restart both computers. Next download Bonjour for Windows on your PC. Install the printer on the Mac following Apple's guide on how to do so. Assuming the PC is on the network as the Mac the PC will see the printer with Bonjour now installed, next install the printer on the PC.
