I have 2 computers in a home network. Both are with win xp pro, first
connected to a siemens router through ethernet connection (pc), the
second with wireless stick (laptop). Both computers see each other, I
can exchange files between them and so on. PC is connected with two
printers (with first through LPT, with 2nd through USB). From PC there
are no problems with printing. From Laptop however, I can send the
documents for printing, but there is no reaction from printers.

I have installed both printers on laptop with the option "add printer
-> a network printer, or a printer attached to another computer ->
browse for a printer".
Can anyone say where is the problem? Why the printing from laptop does
not work? Thanks in advance, Frank
