Posted on behalf of David E.: I want to connect a PC running XP Pro to an HP LaserJet 1200 series printer that's on a small wireless network. I'm using AirPort Express for my wireless access. I've gone through the Add Printer wizard a couple of times and get stumped when trying to use the network option to add this printer to the PC in question. Is it possible I need to connect the PC as a local user? If so, how? What I'm trying to do is let the computer use the IP address of the AirPort Express but I'm stumped. help?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Actually, although it is a printer on a network, use the Local Printer option. Then choose Standard Tcp/Ip Port and specify the address that the AirPort has given the printer.

    Hello, A couple questions that may help you out....first off when you try to add this printer can you actually see it listed as a network device? If not, check that the printer is shared on the network. If it is not shared then it is configured as a local printer to the pc it is attached and you will not be able to add it as a networked printer. Second, have you checked network connectivity? Can you ping the printer if it's attached to a jet direct port or the device it's attached to (pc)? if attached to another PC, is that PC turned on? Adding the printer as a local or domain user should not matter considering you have the proper permissions. By default the everyone group should be allowed to add printers. If you still have problems provide additional detail. Good luck!
