Wireless Printing via Vista

Hi,
I have got a problem with Vista and wireless printing.
Basically, I have a Brother DCP-340cw, which has built in wireless. With my old laptop, I installed the drivers, added the printer and away I went. However, this is not working with my new Vista laptop.
The printer prints fine locally, connected via USB. I then add the printer using Vista's built in add wireless printer wizard, and it finds it, connects and talks to it fine. It appears in my printer list as ready.
However, whenever I try to print something, it goes into the job list as per usual, and dissapears after the job has been "completed" as per usual, but nothing comes out at the printer end. The printer shows no signs of recieving any data atall, just sits there.
Anyone got an idea its driving me mad!!
Regards

You may have to network the Vista PC to the Printer. Have a look in Control Panel for Network Wizard
