PC o/s Win Me connected to the wireless ADSL router via a LAN card and
ethernet connection.

Printer is attached to the PC via USB port.

Laptop Win XP Home SP-2 is connected to PC & ADSL via wireless
adaptor.

All the required folders are set for sharing and can be
seen on the laptop in network places, documents can be viewed and edited.

Printer cannot be seen in 'My Network Places' on the laptop, but appears as
a network printer in 'printers & faxes'.

Printer drivers on loaded onto both machines.

Zonealarm is on pc, McAfee is on the laptop.

Laptop IP address has been added to the trusted zone on Zonealarm.

The problem I have is that I cannot print documents from the laptop.

Can you help.
