What is the compatible printer list for the Airport Express station? I have a Canon PIXMA IP6000D, will that work?

    Thought I'd add that I didn't see the HP Deskjet 9800 on the Airport compatible printers list, but I just got one today and hooked it up to the USB port on the Airport Express. My iMac G5 was able to see it right away. No problem!

    you can also add the Canon S830D to your list (yes I know it's an old one but they're often the hardest to get working!).
    It works great

    Can report that we've just gotten our Canon BJC 6500 and PIXMA IP4200 working fine with a new airport express.

    However, I couldn't get my iMac to find my Laserwiter 320 connected with an iPrint with ethernet to the airport.

    I'm assuming it's compatible being an apple printer and all. So I'm just currently running with the printer connected to the iMac directly and my ethernet cable modem running via the airport.

    Are you using WDS?

    If not then the Airport Express' ethernet port is inactive.

    What wireless router are you using? Is it another Airport?

    Hi,

    I've also bought a Canon IP4200.

    The airport recognizes it, but when I try to set it up on my mac, the computer can't figure out what model of printer it is, and I am forced to select it manually.

    Any idea about what I should select?

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    I noticed that the Canon MP780 has been added to the list. My personal experiences as well as reading others' on these pages all point to an incompatible setup, unless directly connected to the computer itself (No Extreme). Do you have additional information that you think will make the Canon MP780 print via a network such as with an Airport Extreme? My continued (hopes) searches still find nothing.

    Solved it. Just installed new drivers from Canon.

    The reason I moved the MP780 was because of this comment added to the page.

    Which version of firmware are your running on the AEBS?

    Have you installed the latest version of the Canon drivers?
