How do I get Airport to speak to my Ethernet printer?
I only have a basic Airport card, (not Extreme) and no Airport Hub. My Airport speaks to a DSL 2Wire homeport device that is connected to a PC. My serial port laser printer is connected to my G4 via AsanteTalk with an Ethernet cable. Therefore I can print documents residing on my hard drive, but I can’t print directly from the Internet. This is a drag. Formerly, when I was connected to DSL via a USB cable, I could print pages straight off the Internet, but a certain party took away my USB phone cable and “improved” my network with an Airport card. Now Print Center recognizes the Internet document I want to print, but it just hangs there indefinitely acting busy. There must be some code or address that makes this work. In System Preferences, both Built-in ethernet and Airport are checked under Network Port Configurations. Almost everything is greyed out on the Airport Admin Utility, probably because I don’t have a hub.
It might be a good idea to give the model of your "Ethernet printer."
Also, how is your "Ethernet printer" connected to your network?
How do you expect your Mac to see this printer?
