I'm trying to set up a network. I have one PC running Vista 64 bit with an HP Photosmart C4250 printer attached and working perfectly. I also have another PC which runs XP Pro SP3 that I want to network wirelessly so I can print from my XP rig to my Vista rig. Is this even possible. My XP rig is recognizing my Vista rig when I try to add a printer, but when I type in the printer's name I get an error message which states (Windows cannot connect to the printer. Either it was mistyped or blah blah blah) My Vista rig is named EVGA and the printer is named HP. I've tried both and no luck, any help will be greatly appreciated.
