    I'm a teacher, and we have a computer cart with 30 iBooks and a wireless printer. All the iBooks print wirelessly.
    I also have my Macbook, but I can't figure out how to print wirelessly... what do I need to do...

    and of course I'm home at home now, so whatever you have for me to try I'll try in the morning...

    i would imagine that you would need to be logged onto the wireless lan first, then figure out the ip of the printer, unless mac os has some type of "network neighorhood"
