Printer sharing
Soo frustrating! It's appears everything is configured correctly for me to
access the printer attached to my second laptop in the other room via the
linksys wireless.

I have three computors in all, I can go to each computor and see all on the
system including router,

I go to add a printer and see the 'printer' from the other two computiors
and select it but on one it says I need an unknown ini and on the other i
get windows cannot connect...

printer is on, none of the computors are asleep, I have
driver instaled for the printer on all three computors.

Regards,
piedmont

Re: Printer sharing
Many Vista printer issues can be fixed by adding the printer as local
printer first and then mapping it as network printer. This search result
may help.
