iBook G3 Problem PRINTING TO A WIRELESS LINKSYS PRINT SERVER
Posted on 2004-08-04
I need help on a Linksys wireless server Model: WPS54GU2 which is on a PC based wireless workgroup-network. Only three computers exist on this workgroup. This workgroup is link to a Linksys Router running DHCP and serves as a Gateway via a Westtell DSL Modem) one PC is running W2k Pro, one XP-pro and the third is an iBook G3 laptop running the latest OS X jaguar and updates (this laptop has a n Airport card ) the laptop can connect to the net (is using TCP/IP and, obviously it has assigned an IP address.
The problem is as follows: the two PCs can see the printer and can print to it (the printer is an HP Photosmart 1218ix Mac compatible) the laptop has the latest drivers for this printer and can print to the printer while being wired directly to it. I need the laptop to print wirelessly to the printer.
Note: the router has Appletalk enable, but I don’t think this is the problem. I have call Apple and they tell me that I need to know if the printer language for Mac is compatible with the printer Server, Linksys said that the Server is ready for Mac and that the problem needs to be solve by Apple because is an Apple problem, ?????.
Please let me know if one of you can help me on this.
