    My wife has a Dell laptop running Vista. I am trying to get the laptop to
    print to her Canon printer through an airport express. I have tried Bonjour,
    which sees and installs the printer but won't print to it, or prints half a
    page. I have also tried by installing a local printer with the express ip
    address as the port. Same results.

    Has anyone gotten this to work? How?

  2. If she can print half page, this is driver issue. Have you check if there is
    a new printer driver?

    Latest drivers are installed.

    I tried again and the test page will print and then nothing else. The
    printer will not respond after the first page is printed. This happens on her
    printer and trying it through mine.
