    Could print OK from HP PC running Vista Home Premium to my HP printer. Then
    merged my home office, Mac and HP PC. Set up wireless Airport Extreme with
    the Mac on wireless and the PC on ethernet. I can access internet OK from
    each. The printer is connected via USB to the wireless router. Followed
    instructions on PC setup for printer sharing. Can print to printer from Mac,
    but not from my PC, Control Panel-Printers-hp officejet 6100 series- Use

    What do the instructions for the wireless router say about using the
    router USB connector for a printer and setting up windows for using the
    router as a print server?

    Can you see the printer with the browser (may show up under the router)

    If the printer was originally connected to the Vista P/C via USB, you
    may be able to just change the port, or install a second instance of the
    printer and point it to the lan address of the router/printer.
