    Hey,

    I want to set up wireless printing with my mac. I have a printer connected to a PC in my house. The PC is connected to my wireless network. I also have my macbook on my network and the printer is allowed to be shared. When I try and set up printing on my mac, no printers appear. Can anyone help with this situation? Thanks.

    Is the printer network capable, meaning can you connect the printer directly to the wireless router? That is how I have my network setup now and it works better; previously, the PC to which the printer was connected needed to be on in order to print from another computer.

    What Red Raven said. I set up wireless printing for a PC and an iMac for my in-laws a while ago. Connected the printer to the AirPort Express router via USB, and then installed Bonjour on the PC (it is installed by default on Macs). Install the print drivers, set up Bonour, and you should be set. It worked like a charm.
