Trouble using a Printer on a Wireless Home Network

    Having followed the advice provided below I am still unsuccessful in being
    able to use my printer in a home network. I have configured my computers
    accordingly through Symantec NIS (at least I think I did so correctly) and it
    states it recognizes the "Gateway", etc. I have a desktop computer as the
    host unit with the printer attached directly to it. I have a laptop that I
    have a wireless network set up on. Still, I am having difficulties in getting
    documents to print from the laptop.
    Can you help?

  2. Turn NIS off and see if it prints OK. If it does, NIS is your problem. If it
    doesn't then NIS isn't the problem. If NIS isn't the problem, also turn the
    XP firewall off and see if it prints. If it does, then you need to fix the
    XP firewall and then turn
    NIS back on. If it doesn't print, then, you need to fix NIS.

    At this point I assume you have actually installed the printer as a
    networked, shared printer and that any print jobs waiting on the queue that
    aren't printed are deleted before you attempt to print again.
