A possible fix for unreliable printing over Airport
Authored by: jimTucson on Feb 07, '09 03:54:27PM

Finally found this solution after years of living with the problem, and THANK YOU!

Just want to add one odd detail. I have two Tiger iMacs (Intel and PPC) with a Canon iP5200 attached to an ABS. The Intel beast is wired to the network, and the PPC beast is wireless. I have never had a problem printing from the wired system and have problems at least 50% of the time from the wireless system. If this is purely a "too much bandwidth" problem, why isn't it a problem for both systems?

Also, the PPC wireless system is forced to use 802.11g since it can't use the newer 802.11n cards. Is it a problem in the card on the PPC, or perhaps with how the ABS handles 802.11g? I've got a MacBook with an 802.11n card, and while I've never had problems printing from it through this same ABS I don't do that very often.

I must also echo the complaint of an earlier poster that Apple hasn't fixed this.
