     How do I set up the Deskwriter(original) and Imagewriter II to work on Mac ethernet network? I just figured out how to put a Laserwriter II NT on the Ethernet Network via Laserwriter Bridge. How do I do the same thing with the Imagewriter and Deskwriter? I would appreciate any help on my delema.
By the way, why is the printspeed so slow on the Laserwriter II NT with Laserwriter Bridge? It took almost 5 minutes for it to spool and print from the host computer. Its takes 10 minutes from a remote location. PS.. the Host is a 6500/275 with 32 MB ram. Why is printing so slow? Is there a way I can speed it up?

There's a Control Panel called LocalTalk Bridge (which I got from Farallon to make their AirDock IR transceivers work with Open Transport).  This ought to work for your non-LaserWriter printers.  The reason it's so slow is because LocalTalk is slow, and the bridge slows it down even more -- that's why it took so long from remote computers.  I doubt it would speed it up a whole lot, but adding some RAM to the printer couldn't hurt.
