Set up a Belkin wireless print server
Authored by: Tomnibus on Apr 08, '05 11:45:29AM

This works great if Gimp-print has a driver for your printer. I am using a Canon i850 and there are no drivers for that. There are work-arounds that allow it to print but it's not perfect and won't do the advanced options like borderless printing.

IMHO, the best way to go is with an apple print-server that uses their proprietary print-server via rendezvous. Somehow they enable it so that you can use the non-networkable drivers with the print server over the network. I don't know how they do it.

And the "apple print server" works with windows?

i'm not positive, but I think they treat the Airport USB printer port as "a wireless usb" rather than a "print server" and to the driver it is just printing locally.
