I can't get my Canon IP4000 printer to work through my Airport Extreme now that I've upgraded to Leopard. I get error 300 - communication error. It worked fine under Tiger. My HP 1012 Laser continues to work fine through Airport. The Canon works only when directly connected to the computer. Also, my Crossfire hard disk no longer works through airport. It did under Tiger. What did I or do I need to do?
For the printer, try deleting it and re-installing it on your system.
Can't speak to the disk. I assume you have restarted both the computer and the Airport Extreme?

Thank you Jack. I followed your advice and the printer is now running fine. I still can't get the hard disk to work through my Airport Extreme however. Airport says it's there but it doesn't show up on my computers. 'Tis frustrating.
A screen shot of your AirPort Utility app on the "Disks" configuration area would help, specifically the File Sharing tab.
When you say it doesn't "show up" on your computers, where are you looking? Also did you try accessing it with the Connect to Server command in the Finder?

This Board is one reason MacGroup is so special. Thank you Terry. The connect to server command immediately brought the hard disk up on my computers. All is now well with everything working as desired. My hat is off to you and Jack.
