I have a new HP Laptop (Windows Vista) that is conected to a Dell desktop computer (Windows XP) and a Lexmark X6170 printer by a wireless connection. Although I can communicate fine with the Dell computer, I cannot print from the laptop. I have tried everything and have downloaded the new Vista driver from Lexmark. Any ideas?

Have you downloaded Vista drivers from the Lexmark site? I've found that a lot of printers (that are marked as Vista ready or Vista compatible) will need a driver download from the manufacturer's website because the drivers weren't included on the CD that came with the printer.
