We recently discussed a Vista 64 printing issue recently. I flunked and so did the machine makers. But see how they solved it at http://forums.cnet.com/5208-12546_102-0.html?forumID=133&threadID=307191&messageID=2849158&tag=forums06;forum-threads
Another member had changed their router to AP ISOLATION. Research that or CLIENT ISOLATION and YOUR ROUTER. Hint: Don't do that.
I have a home network formerly all xp machines with no issues.
I have introduced a new Vista 64 machine at the hub of my network and am having difficulty getting the wireless laptop to print to a printer that is connected to the vista box through a USB port.
Everything works fine from the vista box.
I have two printers connected to the vista box and was able to install an HP photo printer without issue and share it. The Brother HL-1440 is the demond I am trying to resolve. I have installed the vista driver on the vista box and set the maching for sharing. I have tried to network install and local install the Brother onto the XP laptopwith no success. I have downloaded the newest xp drivers onto the laptop and tried configuring a new port on the laptop as well. I have even uninstalled everything from both machines and deleted the new port and tried to do it all over three times.
When I install as a network printer I get an unable to connect offline error.
When I install it as a local printer and then configure a port it seems to intall and even print a test page but then when I try to print from word or any othe program it just gives me a print error.
I have uninstalled it all again
