Why don't you get 1 wireless printer and install the software on both computers and print from both? Also if/when you get a network printer set the IP manually. That way it never changes. (read on...)

Sharing printers was all the rage back in 1985 (Back to the Future movie) ... not anymore. Your probably having Windows networking problems. Disappearing hosts on the Windows network ... and everytime you reboot whoever comes on 1st gets to be the Master Browser and keep the list of computers on the WIndows network. And often that one just doesn't "get" the other computer (or two or 3) on the network for some reason.

Also problems can happen if the ip addresses are DHCP assigned (very likely) so they keep changing and one computer remembers an old ip and it gets broken all over again.

Is the printer connected via USB to the XP computer?
How did you map the shared printer (ie; what port)
When you're on a Vista machine, go to Network, find thw XP computer, explore, can you access the printer through this method? I need to know if Vista machines were set up with this printer on Local Port or Connected to this machine.

Can't print from Vista Laptop


You need to go to printers and faxes.  Set up a new networked printer.  Take the drivers off of your vista machine, because by using those drivers, vista is thinking that the printer is physically hooked up tot hat computer.
