    Ever since I upgraded to SP2 I can't get my laptop to print to my desktop,
    which shares the internet with a wireless router. The printer connected to
    the desktop could previously be found as well as some shared files on the
    desktop, but not anymore ever since upgrading. I have changed all kinds of
    settings, even disabling the Windows Firewall, and all I can do is Map to
    shared folders on the Laptop, and not vice versa. Has anyone had this similar
    problem? My wireless network consists of a Linksys BEFW11S4, between a Dell
    Dimension 4600 and Inspiron 1100, which has a Linksys pcmcia wireless network
    card. Any suggestions? I get perfect internet access though the router, but
    it seems my network printing and file sharing access to the desktop from the
    laptop have been stopped. Thanks.

    Crabbj ... Did you get the answer? I am having the same problem but, when I
    go to the links shown, I still don't get the answer. I had no problem before
    but after the upgrade, we cannot print from the other computer thru our
    wireless network.

    If you have the answer, please let me know.

    Thanks
