    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 and
    the printer driver has been loaded as a local printer and has been enabled
    for sharing.

    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 me 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 similar 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.

    I have also done everything it says on the help pages from
    http://www.tomsnetworking.com/Sections-article64-page1.php

    What am i doing wrong?
