Default XP/2000 Printer sharing compatibility

I can't seem to be able to share a printer(Canon i250) between a computer running Windows 2000 and Windows XP. They both use a Siemens wireless USB adapter. The problem is that when I tell one of them to search for the printer on the network, they can't find it even when it is put on shared. Can someone help me?

Have you enabled file and pri nter sharing on your computers?

If you have and you still can't get the printer shared, double check your firewall settings.

Woops, I forgot to add that they can't even see each other on the network...
