Hi I have 2 computers a desktop upstairs and a laptop downstairs connectiong through a wireless router.
My problem is this, I have a printer attached to the desktop upstairs and would like to be able to print from it using both the laptop and desktop through the network, I have turned on printer sharing but the laptop cant see the printer how do I get the printer onto the network? P.S. the laptop is running vista and the desktop is running xp

Begin the process of installing a printer and opt to install a network printer.
