    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.

    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?

    i can see the PC name but the printer is not showing. I have tried to alter
    the IP address of the PC and still nothing.

    What do you think then?
