    when I had comcast internet i had a wireless router hooked up to the cable modem and wireless printer. all working and functioning.

    i turned the wireless on my printer on and my mac found it right away. it even had drivers that worked for it that was automatic.

    now i switched to verizon fios. they had their own router / modem. I did not mess with the router they set it up and everything. every laptop in the house that had wireless printing before still works except my mac. so i deleted the printer and pressed the + sigh to add a printer. for whatever reason my mac still doesnt see the printer. yesterday i did a search with a netbook i had and it found the wireless printer right away. so no issues with windows. my mac just doesnt see it like before so i was hoping someone had a suggestion? I cant figure out why my mac wont see it anymore.

    I have seen Bonjour (when you click + and are waiting in the "default" window) discovery take 1+ minute. Did you wait for it?

    Try giving the printer a fixed IP and adding it to the Mac that way.
