    Hi there,

    I have a problem with my Airport Express and printing. Occasionally, I will want to print something off my Samsung CLP-300 printer, which is currently connected to a first generation Airport Express (802.11b/g only, no "n" connectivity). The problem is as described below:

    When I first set up my printer, I'll be able to print a document. However, subsequent documents that I send to the printer won't print. Typically, it will stop at 93% completion, and then hang there for a long, long time. I have to either restart the base station, or I have to delete the printer and re-install it.

    Does anybody know what can be done so that these problems don't crop up?

    Thanks a lot!

    Cheers,
    Eric

    Is your Express running the latest firmware and (sounds stupid but you'd be surprised) have you updated your printer drivers? I've had problems with the standard drivers that come with the apple install discs, and sometimes it's best to get the latest drivers straight from the manufacturer.
