A possible fix for unreliable printing over Airport
Authored by: jgh23 on Jan 29, '07 04:40:15AM
With the help of those that have commented, and some on discussions.apple.com too, it looks like
sudo ipfw add pipe 1 ip from any to <IP Address of AirPort Base Station> 10000
(filling in the IP Address of the Airport Base Station that the printer is connected to) and then
sudo ipfw pipe 1 config bw 12Mbit/s
allow modern printers to work at the more normal USB printer speed of 12Mbit/s. (You can always try the fall back 1Mbit/s, if the connection is still too fast.)
Thanks to all who have replied.

Permanence of this fix?

Quick question (hope people are still reading this thread!): Is this fix permanent, or only until a logout/reboot?

I know that it does not last through a reboot. I don't know about logout without reboot.

Best wishes, Jon
