Airport Extreme should do sharing printer to Windows & Mac seamlessly via Ethernet also, right?
This problem has been bothering me a long time. Hope brothers here can help.
My home office is in a mixed environment, 1 mac with Leopard 10.5.8, and the other mac running with Windows 7 Ulitmate x64 by bootcamp because I need the Coreldraw X4. Windows 7 was clean installed. Both computers are Ethernet wired to the Airport Extreme (Early 2009 dual Band version) with a HP LaserJet P1006 attached to the usb port in order to share the printer to both platforms.
My problem is that, I got the printer installed on Win 7 by using bonjour print service v2.02 without any problem as it saids works in both ethernet and wireless, I sent a print test from win 7 successfully, then I did a test from leopard ( as I presumed it should works also), however, it says "the printer is in use". and wouldn't print. That's weird, huh? I tried restart the AE and tried print from leopard which was fine, but then if I print from Win 7 again, the problem came back. My solution for now is to physically plug the printer to where I need to print from. Very troublesome! I use ethernet wired both computers is because I want to take the advantage of the gigabit lan port for speedy files transfer between both computers.
Brothers, any solution?
