Print to an unsupported USB printer on Airport Extreme
Authored by: ronbel on Sep 18, '03 10:07:44AM

Thanks for your tip. It worked for me. However, my printer is an HP All-in-one with a scanner and card reader as well. Although the printing is working, the scanner and card reader are not. I have to plug in the printer's usb cable directly to my PB to get those two features to work. Any ideas?

The ABS is only capable of printer sharing. Network peripheral sharing is whole different animal, and there aren't any standards for doing so. So, unless hp decides that they want to write their own Rendezvous-based scanner sharing software for us Mac OS X users (out of the goodness of their hearts), I think you're out of luck.

HP now makes an airport and ethernet equipped version of their all in one, though its quite expensive

Which model do you have? I'm in the market for an all-in-one printer, and I'd really like to make sure that at least it prints, even if I have to plug it in to scan.

Does your printer work with Airport out of the box, or did you have to use the method in this tip? Does anyone know if there are any all-in-one printers that work with Airport out of the box?

(Sorry for being a little off-topic)
