Looking for a way to print wirelessly over wifi from a Windows 10 laptop to an Airport Extreme (version 7.7.8) base station with a USB printer connected. The printer is a Canon MX330 series.
I’m able to print from other Mac’s using the wifi network, including an iMac 27″, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro. Haven’t yet figured out how to print from the Windows 10 laptop.
Here’s what answers I’ve found thru web searches and will update this blog post with what works and what doesn’t, after I try them:
has detailed instructions [this one uses adding a printer onto a TCP/IP Port]
says Apple changed the port they use from 9100 to 9101 [essentially, in Windows, add printer, use port number 9101] and the thread also refers to this 2013 video, Windows Printing For Apple AirPort Extreme without Bonjour Wireless wifi. (and in the video's comment thread, people have said it worked with Windows 8, 10, 7..)
To be continued…
Stay tuned and I’ll update this blog post after I test these solutions and see if any of them work, or if I have to do something different..
