    Wireless printing help

    Hi everyone,

    I was hoping someone here may be able to help me....

    I have a laptop that connects to the main computer just through wireless (using a router?)... In the past I used to have it set up so that I could print off the main computers printer through the wireless, but I cant for the life of me work it out at the moment! (I restarted my computer a while ago and lost all the settings then...)

    I have tried the wizards on each computer and can't make it work. Any ideas on what I could do?? Its such a pain having to either use the other computer or use a USB when I need to print something....

    thanks in advance!

    My hubby is a computer tech.... what operating system (eg XP, Me) are you using? Can you access the hard drive of the main computer thats connected to the printer?

    Is usually that the printer is not shared or the permissions for 'Everybody' are not set correctly.
    Start > Printers & faxes > Right Click the Printer > Properties > Sharing tab
    and check that it is shared.
