The problem is I have been able to connected 3 laptops and 1 desktop to a desktop linked with a monochrome laser printer through the wireless network. All the computers here are connected to one network wireless to the same desktop with the printer. However, this laptop (OS Window 7 Ultimate) cannot connect to the desktop (Window 7 Professional). I did connect other Window 7 Ultimate OS laptops to the desktop and see the name of the comptuer, but this one cannot access or enter the network computer. Network sharing is on, and I am not using a Homegroup to connect the printer.

I'd double-check the settings on the maverick computer...in particular, I would ensure that it is joining the same workgroup that exists...as reflected on the other Win 7 systems.

Since you seem to be reflecting the printer as a shared device on the network...it seems to me the workgroup name must be the problem.
