how have you set up the printer as a network printer? Does it have a network card in the printer?

There are 2 ways to network print. You can either print via IP, or set up a network print server on your file server. Unless you're running a pretty big network, I think you want to print via IP.

What kind of printer are you using?

make sure you have your printer sharing enabled too -- (under windows XP sp2)

Start -->Connect To-->Show all connections

Right click "Wireless Network Connection" (or whatever connection you are using) --> Properties

Under the General Tab look for

Second Box Marked "This connection uses the following items:"

Make sure your "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" is check

--

Click the Advanced Tab-->Settings

Under the General Tab, If you have Windows Firewall enabled, make sure you do NOT have the "Don't allow exceptions" box is checked.

Under the Exceptions Tab, make sure the "File and Printer Sharing" is checked

Is the printer "Hosted" from another computer?
Or is it connected directly to the network via it's own network card?

Everything else depends on this question really.
