Hi can anyone help.
I have a wireless network setup which comprises of desktop pc running win xp a laptop also running xp a belkin cable router.
The problem is that although I can share the info on both computers ie internet and files and folders, when it comes to printing the problems start. I can send the print jobs to the printer cue which are clearly displayed howver the print process does not start even though it says that it is printing. I have everything but to no avail.
If anyone can advise me on where I am going wrong then that would be great.

many thanks

A few questions
1 Have you installed the printer driver on all PCs?
2 Have you set the printer up as shared
3 I assume that the printer is connected to the desktop pc, if so is that pc switched on whilst trying to print from say the laptop.
4 When the above have been checked try test printing from each of the pcs to the printer

Has the printer been installed as a *NETWORK PRINTER* in the laptop?
