Wirless printing via iMac and wireless router
Authored by: Shawn Parr on Jul 25, '06 08:44:32AM

This is awfully complicated. Besides the above hint that also allows the printer to be seen bonjour, there is a much easier way to do this:

System Preferences.app -> Sharing, click the Internet tab, and check the port you will connect the printer to. Now the printer will get its DHCP address directly from the router passed through the Mac. No static routes or gateways involved, so you don't have to worry about arcane interfaces or weird bugs in your router's interface.

Sure hope this hint works for me, because right now I'm stuck getting the wireless printer thing to work.....
