Hmmm, not sure what the problem is, I have one printer (USB) attached to my XP x64 rig and my network (RJ-45) printer attached to an XP x86 rig. I can see and print to either printer from any system on the network including the Vista Ult x64 and the wireless lappy with Vista Home Prem. I did mark the priinters to be shared on the installed systems and then merely installed a network printer on the remote systems. They found the networked printers and ask to install the drivers I said yes and that was it....instant printing. I did not try any network configurations other than that which is installed by each system as the beginning. It was really that simple and as you can see, I have 4 versions of the OS...XP x86, XP x64, Vista Hm Prem x86, and Vista Ult x64 all hooked by hard wire or wireless and it all makes no difference. Are you trying too hard to make things work. Remember Occam's Razor (to paraphrase)...When all else fails, the simplest solution is probably correct. Good luck...talker.
