Do I have to connect my new Airport Extreme to my new Canon PIXMA 990 wireless printer using a USB cable? Or, can I go completely wireless?

    The Canon Pixma 990 has wireless printing support built right in, so you can safely ignore the wireless printing support in the Airport Extreme and ditch the cables. The Airport's wireless printer functionality exists to add this feature to printers which lack direct WiFi support, and so is entirely unnecessary in your case. :)
