HP Deskjet 5850 incompatible w/ Airport 4.0?

  1. I briefly flirted with installing an Airport Express a couple of days
    ago. When I installed the Airport 4.0 software, my printer wouldn't
    work! (It's an HP Deskjet 5850 wireless printer.) The printer's
    embedded web server wouldn't respond, and the printer itself wouldn't
    respond to requests to print.

    I reinstalled OSX, reverting to the old version of Airport, and now the
    printer works again.

    Has anyone else had this problem? If so, I'm screwed once Tiger comes
    out (I'm assuming Tiger has Airport 4.0)...

  2. Why do you assume you're screwed? It could simply be a bug in Airport
    4.0, or in the printer, or a misconfiguration.

  3. Because Tiger will have Airport 4.0, and if I can't use the printer, I
    can't use Tiger...
