Vista wireless system will not print thru XP servers
I have a network with two wired systems, each running Win XP.

Then I have several wireless notebooks, one running Vista, one running XP.


Neither one will print thru the network to the shared printer on one wired system (XP)

Any ideas/

Thanks

Are you using DHCP on both wireless and Ethernet? I have laptops (XP, Vista and Windows 7) printing to the same printer via Ethernet and wireless.

By default the Ethernet interface (TCP/IP) is configured via DHCP, but the IP address and other parameters can be configured. Wireless is DHCP only.

ipconfig /all should help.
