    I have installed Vista on my laptop. The rest of the computers on the network
    are windows xp. I can not see any of the computers on the network. Also I
    installed the drivers for the printer but I can't print from my laptop. I can
    ping the printer and it says that the printer is printing. But it doesn't do
    anything.

    Gloria: Thank you so much for your responds but I have been there, done
    that, and still no luck.
    I have tried so many different things that I am pulling the last little bit
    of my hair out.
    Nothing seems to work.
    Thank you again sincerely, and I will try it again

    Thank you so much Gloria, I have gone there twice, and followed the
    steps...to the letter..Nothing.

    This so frustrating, and I can only image others wit the same problem.

    I will give this link other try...
