I've tried to follow detailed instruc on how to share a printer,which is conntd to a desktop win xp and router, and want to share the printer with wireless win7 laptop?? No luck,anyone with help would be appreciated--somehow think it could be a firewall problem, but unsure how to remedy this. Don't want to mess up my firewall, and think it is the desktop xp -firewall. Have both computer setup with sharing, etc.

Control Panel, Windows Firewall, Exceptions. Check File and Printer Sharing and click OK to save the settings.
