Network Printer not working
I just purchased a new laptop with Vista Home Premium and have it networked
to my w2k Pro desktop. At first the desktop printer was workign fine from
the laptop, but now it stopped working. Any idea what might be going on?

Hi Mike,

You might want to check out the following discussion:

Vista Basic - network printer goes offline on re-start

For me, I had to go into the router and assign the printer to a static IP address... you might want to try that, since for me, the printer would get 'lost' if the router assigned it to a different address.

Cheers.
