Its an older HP LaserJet 5P. It is attached to the laptop. When I am on the desktop, I can choose "add new printer", browse and find the printer on the laptop, and it says I have succesfully added the printer. It will then show in my printer list. If I open it, it will display the que. If I do anything else, including try to print to it, it gives me the "driver is not installed error. I can choose to install the driver at that point (which I shouldn't have to do, I don't think) and it again tells me it was successfully installed. I can try again to print, and the whole "driver not installed" error happens again. The same issue happens when I am on the laptop and try to add then use the Lexmark 700 attached to the desktop. The laptop sees it, adds it, but then errors when it tries to use it - "driver not installed". I posted here in the networking forum because I was concerned it might be a network setup issue, or a personal firewall issue, etc.
