XP Pro is not seen on Vista Machine

I have recently installed D-Link Wireless Router Dl-624 Airplus ExtremeG to share my internet and printer.
I can share internet on my Sony Laptop but cannot share the printer connected to my XP machine. Reading through various suggestions did not help. As brundle has previously suggested on this forum I downloaded and installed LLTD on my XP Machine but still cannot see my XP Maxhine on my Laptop but can see the laptop on XP. Printer is not seen either.
I am using epson stylus color 760.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Can you ping the XP machine from the laptop? Is NetBIOS over TCP/IP enabled?

Thanks for your response. I have been fiddling arrond for the last 2hours. Finally I resolved the problem.I have successfully printed a document sent from my vista machine to xp.I hope it stays like this.I have networked machines before many times but vista was my first one to be networked with xp machine as a server. Thanks again.
