Trying to connect my Lexmark prospect pro250 to my new Airport Extreme over wi fi... I read that I should go into the airport utility and find "add wi fi printer" from the base station menu... But this option doesn't show up.  When I click on the pic of my Airport Extreme there is an edit button that opens to what looks like a base station menu but no options for adding anything except "Back to my Mac".  Can anyone help?

MacBook Pro, iOS 6.1.3

    You are likely confusing the Base Station menu (top of screen) with the Base Station tab (center of screen)


    When you click on the AirPort Extreme icon and then click Edit.......follow the instructions to click on the Base Station menu.


    That would be at the very top of the computer screen up where the other menus are located.....File, Edit, Window Help, etc.
