You can start deleting this printer from your list, then access her shared folders
you should be able to see the printer.
next go to printers on windows xp (not sure if its called printers or printers or scanners but its on control panel).
then select "add new printer" , "network printer" etc.... sorry I have windows 7, but I'm sure you will get it, you don't need the drivers for this.
more stuff that you need to check is
1. is her computer on / username logged in , when you send a print job?
2. did she stop sharing the printer ? (check by opening internet explorer and type \\WIFEPC (change WIFEPC for her computer name! NOT HER WINDOWS LOGIN NAME!)
ok, test this method first.
my suggestion is to connect this printer to your router just like a laptop , then install drivers on both computers and send print jobs over the network,! according to google this printer is wireless and you dont have to connect a usb cord to it, you can have it on top of the microwave if you want.
