Printing to a WinXP Shared Printer

  1. I recently bought a Mac Powerbook and I am trying to print to my printer on
    my Win XP computer through the wireless connection on my laptop.I am able to
    share files in both directions but the Mac doesn`t see the printer.Does
    anyone know if this a SP2 issue?Thanks in advance.

  2. I ran into this problem last week. I can see the printer, but it prints
    garbage, despite having the latest drivers for both Mac and Windows.
    There's a discussion and a proposed solution here:

    I haven't had a chance to try this yet.
