I have a Toshiba Laptop running Vista, and a Sony Vaio desktop running XP Home. I just got a Kodak 5300 AiO printer, and hooked it upto the desktop, thinking I could share it over my home network to my laptop. But, my laptop doesn't detect it? The drivers are the same for XP and Vista; I enabled printer sharing; they both have unique networks names; both computers are on the same network. I got on the laptop, went to the printers folder, and clicked "Add Printer." The box popped up, I hit Wireless/network/bluetooth, and then it went into search mode. It can't seem to find the printer though. I have restarted the desktop, thinking it may need it after setting the printer to shared. Still shows up on the desktop as being shared, yet the Laptop can't find it. Suggestions?
Intel Celeron D 2.8Ghz
80G Seagate Baracuda 7200.7
GeForce FX5500 (PCI) OCed to 300/500
am I missing anything?
Now: Toshiba Sattelite L35-S2161 running Ubuntu :)
