I have a home network (both wireless and hard wired). I recently had to purchase a new office computer running XP Pro (a lot of the software i need only runs on XP). My printer is 'attached' to this computer. I am having a problem with a laptop running Vista. It does not recogonize the hardwired network (workgroup MSHOME). It can access the internet via the wireless network but I can't get it to 'see' the MSHOME workgroup and therefore can print from the laptop... (not sure if this is a VISTA or XP problem - or both)
