I want to share a printer on my wireless network - running winXP on both machines and using Linksys adsl modem - I have tried enabling printer sharing on the host machine and then adding a printer on the shared system but it wont find any printers on the network - I have given the shared printer a name and loaded the drivers on the shared system but nothing seems to work - can anyone help?

Go to Start\Settings\Printers does your printer show a blue tag? if not right click and go to Share and set it

Yes it is set - I think that maybe the problem is that the 2nd computer cant find the computer on the network
