Printer is connected via USB to a Win XP PC and prints fine. However will only print test print from networked Vista laptop?


I take it you the Win XP PC is on the same network that your Vista Laptop is on and that some how you must be able to share the printer through your XP PC?
I think you are experiencing the many issue that Vista has to offer.
Maybe think of actually seeing about placing the printer on a Network print server. This would solve your issue. I did this with my Brother Laser printer and it works great. I believe the print servers are coming down in price I am using a TRENDnet TP100 and it works great with my two wired network desktop PCs and the two wireless notbooks that both have Vista on them.

The second page prints upside down when printing on two sided


Are you attempting to print a double sided page? If so then on your Vista pcs you should set it in the printing preferences to print double-sided whenever you need to print.
Do not give command for two-sided printing from other programs such as Adobe reader or Microsoft Word etc.
