The easiest Way that I have found is using a airport. Plug the printer in and run airport utility. Hard drive/applications/utility.  Set up your printer. Then you have to go to system preferences/ print and fax and finish setting it up there.. Bob

I know that one of the first things she'll want to know how to do is print. Right now our printer is plugged into our iMac via USB. I'm going to have to purchase a new wireless router as the very old one I have is Wireless B I think and it's slow as anything. Is Wireless N the newest? What's the easiest way to set up the printer for my wife to print from the MacBook? Should I be looking for a special type of wireless router? I'm very knowledgeable when it comes to the ins and outs of my Mac but I'm naive when it comes to the whole wireless thing. I would prefer it if she didn't have to rely on the iMac in case it's put to sleep when she needs to print.
