I know what your problem is. On the XP machine that is plugged into the printer, go to start then control panel, then printer and faxes. Now look for the printer that is plugged into your computer, now right click the go to sharing and then select share this printer.
Now, once that is done, go to your firewall, then exceptions. Now check file and printer sharing and exit.
Now your done with that computer. go over to vista pc you want to have the printer connected to wireless.
Go to start then network, now you should see on the top of the network page that says add printer, click that and then it will say connect to wireless, blue-tooth or network computer. It will look for the computer you have plugged into the printer and then add the printer. Your done!!!
The only downside to this is you NEED to have the pc plugged into the printer on in order to print wirelesly from your vista machine
