    I have a desktop Vista computer wireconected to a wireless router.
    This computer is also wired to a printer.
    I have a laptop XP that has access to the internet wirelessly.
    I have set the Vista printer to be shared and the files.
    I have downloaded the LLTD on the XP laptop.
    The XP laptop does not recognize the printer.
    Both units are in the same workgroup.
    What am I missing?

    It sounds like you haven't added the new printer (which is a network
    printer) to the laptop. You have to go to "Add a Printer" in Control Panel,
    and then go through the add printer process for a network printer. Make sure
    your laptop is connected to your network when you do this.
