I have installed a wifi printer which I cannot print to. I can print from ipad and daughters laptop. We both have the same Virus programme installed. I have tried to connect to the home network using advice from Microsoft web sites but to no avail. The only way I can print is by turning off the Firewall. Can anyone tell me what I am missing here.

What op system ? what firewall?

sounds like you need to open firewall settings and allow the printing program access.

Thanks for reply Fruit Bat, I am running Windows 7 with AVG Internet security. I have tried to enable File and Printer settings within the AVG Firewall but it always reverts to disabled. If I go into settings I have turned off the firewall and been able to print. The settings within my computer system shows that I am not connected to a network. I am at a loss in that when I want to print I have to send to my ipad. Cheers.
