    Hi! I have an old HP All-In-One in my kitchen running Windows 7, then I have a Mac mini in another room and an AirPort Extreme providing Wifi. I can hit my Canon inkjet printer from my Mac, but not from my PC. This happened all of a sudden a couple of weeks ago. Windows update, maybe? Anyway, both computers hit the internet with no problems, but I just can't hit the printer from the PC. Even the Canon setup CD won't find it. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I'm certainly not an expert on Mac's or anything related to them. However, if the Canon can be seen by the PC then there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to utilize it. Are the printers wireless? If so check the IP address of them and make sure the Pc is printing to the IP port. Not by name.
    Just a thought.
