    Hi!

    I recently purchased a 24 inch imac computer and I have an HP 460 CB mobile printer which prints wirelessly and would appreciate any information from the members on how to set up the computer so it can print wirelessly.

    Thanks in advance for any info/suggestions you can give me so I can print wirelessly from my computer. :)

    Has your printer been setup for wireless printing already ie can you print using any other machines at the moment? or is it a completely new printer?

    If already setup - check to see if the printer is available under 'system preferences > print & fax' (click the + on the bottom left) - the printer may pop up via bonjour.

    If new printer - the easiest solution is follow the printer wireless instructions that came with the printer first before trying to add the printer in system preferences.

    Hi!

    My printer is already set up to print wirelessly and so I followed the instructions you gave me and my printer is now printing wirelessly from the imac computer.

    Thanks again for your help!
