Hi i have a wireless network functioning in the house. Desktop (Win98se)wired to switch which in turn is connected to a bb modem and also a WAP. Laptop (XPpro) runs a pcmcia card which connects to the wap.

I have just bought a wireless print server. So my inkjet is now connected to the wps.

By typing in the ip address i can access the print server from both machines. Oddly, it does not appear in network neighborhood on the desktop - but I have been able to manually add it as a network printer. So I can print quite happily from the desktop to the wirless print server. I cannot do the same from the XP laptop and cannot figure out why (especially as I can access the prnint server via its web browser). Has anyonwe got any pointers ?

the printer or print server, but I've had a client with a similar problem in the past with a Hewlett Packard print server/printer set up.

In that case the problem was caused by not running the supplied utility software on both computers, and not naming the network correctly. Once I sorted that out it all worked perfectly.

Oops sorry - Access point and PCMCIA card are Belkin. the print server is Edimax and the printer HP Photosmart 7150.
