hey guys. Maybe someone can help me with this. I have a small network at home consisting of one Linksys WRT54G router, one windows ME wired 100baseTX to the router, and one Windows XP home laptop running the 802.11G. My lexmark X1185 USB all-in-one is connected to the ME machine. I have both of them on the same workgroup with a static IP address of on the ME computer. File and printer sharing is installed. I can view the HD and the printer (which are shared) from the XP machine. I install the printer fine. When i print, i see the the GUI pop up on the ME PC and hear the printer respond for a second but nothing prints.

No firewalls are running on my Machines. Lexmark site is no help.

Any ideas guys? Thanks! :tazz:

Check to see if the printer is compatible with the router, for wireless networking.
