When I try to add a shared printer on my network to a networked computer, my
computer can't find anything past the "Windows Network" when I have the
laptop brose for a networked printer in the add printer wizard.
Any suggestions"

Anthony,

If you look at the web site that Carey gave, you'll find that, depending
upon your operating system, you may not be able to follow Tip #1. With
a single exception, the settings described in Tip #1 don't exist in
Windows NT/2K/XP, for instance. For details:

What's more, following that tip wouldn't help, because it has nothing to
do with the problem that you describe.

The Windows platform (including Windows 9x and NT/2000/XP) has its
networking infrastructure based upon TCP/IP, with NetBIOS Over TCP/IP
(NBT) used as an interface between TCP/IP and the various networking
applications.

Any properly configured installation of Windows will run just fine with
these components.

Be selective when accepting advice, web pages or otherwise, that
contains instructions to install redundant and unnecessary components,
such as IPX/SPX or NetBEUI. Adding these extra components may serve as
a workaround, but will add needless complications that may cause
problems in the future.

Diagnose and fix the problem - don't just fix the symptoms.

Your problem may not be unique to the wireless environment. You may get
more advice from one of the forums that specialises in networking
problems with your operating system. For instance, if you have Windows
XP, you might get help in microsoft.public.windowsxp.network_web.
