    i'm having a similar problem but whats happening to me is that i'm using a MacBook and my printers are connected to a Win. XP Home computer. the PC is connected via ethernet to the router, and the MacBook is connected wirelessly.

    When i browse for the printers i cant find them at all, it's like they're not there, I want to print from my MacBook without being wired to the printers but i can't do this :(

    maybe you should try removing the printer and then browsing for it again and setting it up again
