Heres the setup:
Desktop with windows XP Media center edition has an HP Printer plugged directly into it. The printer works fine, and the XP machine has File and Printer Sharing Enabled. Desktop is hard wired to the router, all 3 laptops are wireless
Laptop #1 - Running Windows Vista, I added a network Printer, which is the printer that is hooked up to the other computer, works like a charm, it goes right to the printer directly as long as the other comp is turned on, obviously. That one is all set
Laptop 2 and 3: Running Windows 7 Home Premium, all HP Laptops. Same procedure, added the printer same was as i did vista, it recognizes the printer, adds the drivers, no error messages etc. Go to print a test page, or print a letter from any program, it sends it, still no error messages, and it just prints but nothing happens, like it printed with no problem but it doesnt print.
I can hook up the windows 7 machine directly to the printer and it works fine, so the drivers are fine. Im also able to share a folder thats on the XP machines desktop and open the folder on the windows 7 machines.
I just cant print to it wirelessly, is this a windows 7 to xp type issue??? any ideas??
