    I have a wireless network that has a laptop (XP Home) and a PC (XP Pro)
    attached. A HP Deskjet 610C is connected to the PC via a serial cable.

    I have installed the printer drivers onto both computers however i cannot
    see the printer from my Laptop and it won't install as a network printer
    because of this. When I try to add the printer i can see the home network
    and even the other PC but it does not allow me to see the printer that is
    connected to it.

    I have changed the IP address's so that they are sinilar and gone through a
    few other changes like disabling the firewall etc but still nothing.

    If i try it the other way around and connect the printer to the laptop i can
    see the Printer from the PC.

    What am i doing wrong?

  2. You haven't said so I will ask the obvious question, you have gone to
    printer properties and enabled sharing, have you?
