    Is the printer hooked up to the airport dock? Only some modes of the airport doc support wireless print sharing. Also not all printers support print sharing period.

    I have had hit and miss luck printing to my printer over Airport, though my old laser printer did so just fine. I have come to the conclusion that it is a printer issue not an Airport one. Maybe your printer just doesnt like playing nice with Airport?

    As the previous reply points out, and i learned the hard way, not all printers like wireless.

    thanks for the advice. i can just take my laptop to where the printer is and print through the usb so it isnt much of a problem anyway.
