    I have an Apple Airport Express for my router and all my computers are apple except for the new Acer Aspire One.

    I print on a Brother HL 2070N laser printer that is attached to my Airport Extreme router by ethernet cable (so my individual computers are not connected to the printer).

    I'd like to be able to print this way, via the network, with the AA1 but I am pretty clueless about windows (running xp) and have fumbled around trying to get it to work but can't get it going.

    Does anyone else have this setup? Any advice on setting up network printing?

    I did buy an external optical drive, so I'll be able to install the printer driver. When I try to add a new printer it asks for the "name of the printer". I have no idea what this is. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
