    hello. very odd thing happened - my printer stopped working with my mbp that has leopard on it. there is also a G5 and Cube connected to my airport extreme, both with Tiger. the G5 is connected to the network wirelessly in the other room, and nothing happens when i print on that computer either. however, my cube, which is connected directly to the router, prints fine. i tried both wirelessly and directly connected with my mbp, but both ways don't work.

    i have a samsung ml-1740. has anyone else had problems like this? please HELP!

    I have heard of this sort of thing happening with Lexmark Printers. Weird

    Delete it and then add it back.

    You have checked the print queue to make sure its not stopped or anything like that?

    Sounds like you need to reload the drivers. Failing that, you can try having the computer search for the printer then add it.
