I have a hpdeskjet 3910 on my pc at home. I also have a laptop and I would love to be able to print from it as well. The laptop is wireless.

Thanks for any help.

Well what took that guy a minute took me about five hours. I wish I had seen this before I tried. I ended up downloading a Pure Network Magic program and then it took me for ever to figure it out. The guy on your link made it sound so simple. If you don't see any problem with the way I did it, I think I will just leave it.

Thanks

The important thing is- does it work?

So far it does, I'm hoping when this trial offer is over I don't lose the printer as well. If it does I'll go back and try the thing you suggested it looks pretty simple. We'll wait and see, I guess.

Thanks

Well, I disabled the Network Magic because it really slowed my computer down to a crawl. The easy hookup for it through windows isn't quite to easy to me. I never succeeded with it. Anyway, I've lived without it before and I guess I will again.

I had the same problem, now working perfectly thanks to Tomo2 from here. This is for a Vista laptop networked to a XP desktop.

First on laptop go to Control panel/user accounts and turn user account control OFF.
Go here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/126483/adding-a-network-printer/
And follow Tomo2's instructions.

Good luck.
