shared printer issues
2 computers with vista home professional. Printer can be shared (canon
i550). wWhen laptop is shut down, printer has to be reinstalled. When I
look at printer properties ports are no longer shown, sharing does not
mention name of printer, yet genral shows that canon i550 is printer. Any
suggestions please.

RE: shared printer issues
For a start, there is NO vista home professional!!!!!
And, how do you have the Printer set up?
Are both computers Networked properly?
Do you use a Router?

Re: shared printer issues
We have seen some cases like this one. 1. try to install latest printer
driver. 2. Install the printer as local printer first and then remap it as
network printer. The following links may help too.

Re: shared printer issues

Did you try adding the printer using Administrator privs? Just go to the
Control Panel > Printers > Add Printer Icon (right-click) > Run As
Administrator > Add Printer. This process gave me access to the network
printer. Unfortunately, MS Word will not work at all if the network
printer is setup as the default and not added by the administrator.
