I just installed a WAP4410 in my wife's office. The WAP4410 is plugged into the network switch. The switch links two printers, a Windows XP machine, an iMac, two printers and a file server. From the wireless computer (an iMac running OS 10.5) I am able to access the Internet and the file server. I cannot access either of the printers. The first time I tried printing to one of the printers the Mac OS told me I didn't have AppleTalk installed. I shutdown AppleTalk on the Ethernet connection and turned it on on the Wireless connection. Still no go with the printer. Does anyone have any input on this issue? I would be happy to hear that you can access networked printer over a wireless access point or that it was breeze on someone's Windows machine. I have never used a device like this before so this is all new to me. And if anyone can actually tell me what I need to do to get her printers working over the wireless connection... Well let's just say I would be eternally grateful. :-) Thanks to all.
Thanks for the suggestions Andrew. I have to admit I 'assumed' (yeah I know!) most of these were non-issues since I could access the file server and the router but I will check them anyway. The Mac I'm trying to access the printers from does have a Firewall so I will check its settings. I will double-check that I can ping the printers although this is one of those things I assumed I could do if I could 'see' the file server. The printers are on the wired network not wireless. At this point I think I will try deleting the existing printers (after I have checked a few of the things you suggested) and re-installing them. Perhaps the printers were installed in a manner that doesn't jive with the wireless access point. Thanks again.
