    I have a Windows desktop hooked directly to my printer.
    I print through my wireless network with my MBP.
    I had Verizon DSL and everything worked fine.
    Friday I switched to Comcast and the tech that installed it had to put in a new modem.
    I tried printing for the first time today and the Mac won't print.
    The desktop is printing fine though.
    I'm a novice here...... Is there something easy to check?

    Check you WiFi network settings for your printer. Even if you kept the same SSID (network name) and password, it needs to be re-entered. After this, delete the printer from your printer list on your mac and re-add it.

    Hmmm, not quite sure how I did it, but it's working again..........
    Originally, I followed the guide here and went through the localhost thing with CUPS. It was very confusing.
    I tried that again and couldn't get it to work, then somehow got to a place in settings that let me pick from a list of printers and it works perfect again.
