just purchased a Canon MX860 wireless printer and am trying to put it to use at home.
We have a Dell with Windows XP and a Mac with OSX Version 10.5.6.
I have it wired to the Dell via a USB cable and (after umpteen attempts) can finally "see" it on the Mac side to print to, but it won't print anything...comes back with Error 311.
Plus I have to log onto it a) to connect and then again to print.
Obviously i'm doing something wrong.
Can anyone help?
I would also ultimately like to print wirelessly with the Dell as well. I'd also like to conect other laptops we have but i'm hpoing once i can do one, then i can just mimic it for the others.
oh, and maybe i should mention that we have a Linksys router Model#:USB54G which the Dell is hard wider to but the Mac connect remotely to.....
