i have a win 7 desktop that is wired to an hp printer and it works fine. i also have a win vista laptop that can connect to the win 7 via a router. i have shared the printer and c drive on the win 7. both computers are in the same work group. i can see the win 7 from the vista and open c drive. i can see the printer also but can't connect to it. any suggestions? thanks,
