Get Epson AcuLaser C1100 to work on USB port of FRITZ!BOX WLAN 3270 (DSL-WLAN-Router) under MacOS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
Credits: the solution is a direct adaptation of the posting of "nafets" of 2009-04-14 at 22:28 on this page. However, since someone didn't manage to implement the advice, I will give a more detailed version of the same.
nafets points out in an earlier post (2007-10-06, 17:03) on the previous page, that the newer printer drivers won't work, because they insist on interacting with the printer, but the FRITZ!BOX's USB port is strictly one-way only, and thus the computer can't get information about the printer. nafets says that verions 3.0 and 3.1 of the software are ok. Also, in this post he says that one has to download the "AcuLaser CX11N" drivers, and not, as one might guess at that point, the "ActionLaser C1100" drivers!
Note, after you install these drivers, Software Update will eventually ask you if you want to update your Epson Printer Drivers. Do NOT update! The point of this hint is namely to use the old drivers, because only the old drivers work with the WLAN box and this printer!
