For Windows XP Professional, the maximum number of other computers that are permitted to simultaneously connect over the network is ten. This limit includes all transports and resource sharing protocols combined. For Windows XP Home Edition, the maximum number of other computers that are permitted to simultaneously connect over the network is five. This limit is the number of simultaneous sessions from other computers the system is permitted to host. This limit does not apply to the use of administrative tools that attach from a remote computer.

To get ahead of myself and answer your question first, your Win 7 machine may automatically load a driver for your shared printer.
Please have a look at the procedure below: (these instructions assume that your XP machine is sharing the HP printer and that your Win 7 laptop can "see" your network and the shared printer connected to your XP desktop computer)
On the Win7 machine, follow these steps:
1) In "Control Panel" click "Add local printer" 2) Create New Port > Local port 3) Port Name is "\\xpcomputername\printername" - without the quotes
(insert the XP's real network name and your printer's real name in the above location)
4) Click <OK>
5) Windows 7 should automatically load a driver allowing you to print on the HP connected to the XP from the Win7 laptop.
go to control panel>>add and remove prgrams>>click on add/reomve windows components on the left panel.
make sure you have the system CD.
put a check mark in "networking services" and "other network files and print services" install the addtional services.
check the share volume, make sure you have given the user rights to access the drive.
Initially, pls try enabling the Share feature of the printer in XP. Pls go to Start, Printers & Faxes, right click on the printer you want to share, click on Sharing...follow on screen instructions. A few suggestions:
verify that the Vista and the XP uses the same Workgroup;
verify that other shared folders and files could be viewed from each other;
verify that each could access the internet from a single connection.
A few questions:
do you have a router or a hub;
how are the XP and Vista connected to the network, LAN cables or wireless.
confirm that it is a HP > PSC 1510 All-In-One InkJet Printer that is connected to the XP machine.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
In Windows XP Professional the maximum is 10, but you can set this to a lower value. You can use the Shared Folders snap-in to determine the maximum number of users that are permitted to access a folder. In the Shared Folders details pane, click the shared folder for which you want to determine the maximum number of concurrent users who can access the folder. On the Action menu, click Properties, displaying the Properties dialog box for the shared folder. The General tab shows you the user limit. Remember Win SP the maximus is 10. You can also use the Shared Folders snap-in to determine if the max numberof users that are permitted to access a folder has be reached.
Determine the number of connections to the share and the max connections allowed. If the max number of connections has already been made, the user cannot connect to the shared resource.
Yes, the xp machine connects to the net. DHCP is not enabled. The ipconfig/all command brings up the correct static ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. But it does also say under the ip configuration that ip routing is not enabled. I did have the 2000 machine connected when I first set up the router yesterday, but I booted up my laptop to try to set up a wireless connection, and then I had to reinstall the entire router set-up.
