    Hey guys, I'd like to know how i can set up my Macbook Pro to print to my wireless printer which was installed a few months ago to my old PC.

    How can I print from my MBP without installing the software all over again on my mac?

    Install bonjour on the pc. If it's a wireless printer installed on the network OS X should be able to find it regardless. As long as snow leopard is installed you won't need to reinstall software either since it is built in to the OS if it a common printer. I've had a couple of printers which os x pulled the drivers automatically from the Internet too.

    Ok, thanks...but I already tried that and when I installed Bonjour on the PC, the Mac wasn't finding the printer when I searched.
