    I am trying to setup my gf's Macbook to print wireless from my printer. I am running WinXP and using an Epson R340... I have searched google and tried to it but nothing is working...

    How are you doing it?

    I'm not entire sure if OS X has drivers for that printer by default (if not, just install the latest GIMP drivers -- a lot more lightweight then the **** you get from the manufacturers)

    Then in XP under your account make sure the printer is shared on the network -- you need to enable all the file and printer sharing crap etc first obviously..

    Then on her MacBook under the printer prefs, click add, and the printer should show up under 'Windows' if you have everything configured properly on the XP side.

    If you have any questions, ask.

    Thanks for the fast reply, I just figured it out... All the sites that I found were saying to use IP, I didn;t even think to use the Windows tab LOL... And the printer settings were on there i just searched for R340...
