    I just bought an AirPort Extreme and everything seems to be networked properly.

    I have a Dell Vista desktop and XBOX 360 connected via ethernet. Also, two Dell XP laptops and TiVo Series 2 connected via WiFi (no Mac hardware except iPod Touch). These guys are all recognized and access the internet flawlessly.

    My problem is my Dell Printer 924 (Photo All-in-One), that is connected via USB, doesn't print. I installed Bonjour for Windows on all three computers. The printer description and drivers are installed and the computers all recognize the printer just fine.

    When I send a test print page, it doesn't make it to the printer. In the Printer Queue it says the document has been "Sent to the printer", but nothing gets printed.

    Please help! The only reason I bought the AirPort was for the USB functionality. I've scoured these forums, but I can't find this particular problem.

    Note: I also posted this on Apple's Discussion Forums

    this is probably an incompatible printer with the airport express.
    I have an epson c70 that work on my airport express without any problems, I also have the Dell 924, but the airport expresss does not recognize it at all.
    This is apparently a VERY common problem with the airport express, lots of usb printers do not work with it. I have heard it described as "the dirty little secrete apple doesn't want you to know about the airport express/extreme"

    I'm sure this caused endless hours of frustration for many users.
