My home network consists of 2 desktops hard wired to a Linksys WRT54G and 1 Laptop connecting wireless.
A printer is connected to the PC running XP Home. The other desktop is running XP Pro. The laptop is also running XP Pro. I can print from the desktop running XP Pro, but not the laptop (XP Pro). The laptop shows the printer (shared) in the Printers/Faxes page and is set as default, but I cannot print from the laptop.
"Sharing" is selected on all computers. What am I missing or overlooking?
