WPS54G and a Mac

    I've been using a WPS54G on my home network for several months without issue. I have it set to a static IP, with WEP, in infrastructure mode.

    The trouble I'm having is that I've bought an iBook and it's not playing nice with the print server.

    I can print to the printer using a USB cable and the GimpPrint CUPS drivers, which should be wireless compatible; but I can't print through the print server.

    In fact, the only time I can even see the print server is when I enable AppleTalk on the iBook, and even then, it won't print.

    Call me old fashioned, but I'm finding the whole process a bit frustrating.

    I'm not familiar with setting this up on a Mac, but can't you give the WPS54G a static IP and then tell the iBook to print to that IP address?
