    Hello,



    I almost bought a new printer, till i had the sense to hook up my old epson usb printer, an r200, directly to my macbook pro. it works fine when hooked up directly to my computer...

    ... but when trying to print through my airport network, through my airport express, it doesn't work. there is a communication error...


    ... how to i begin trying to diagnose a communication error while printing through my airport express?


    thanks,
    r.

    Strange error. Have you read this support page about generic printing problems with the AirPorts? It's quite general, but it's a good start. :)

    thanks, that helped.

    i switched to using the beta gimp driver and it worked!

    thanks,
