I am setting up a home wireless network and need some help.

This is what I would like to Network:
1. Desktop PC w/ Windows XP SP3 (this PC is hooked directly up to a Linksys Wireless Router
2. Laptop Running Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 32-bit
3. Laptop Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
4. Desktop Running Windows XP SP3
5. Desktop Running Windows XP SP3
6. HP LAserJet CP2025dn (connected via USB to main desktop)
7. Dell MFP 1815dn (connected via USB to main desktop)

The printers are installed on the main desktop (the one wire connected to the router). I shared them, and am able to recognize them from the Vista laptop, but not the Windows laptop. Sometimes the Windows Vista one will not recognize them either.

Windows Vista Laptop:
I add the printers by going to Network (Center) > Add Printer. It does a search for printers. Sometimes it identifies the other computers on the network, sometimes it does not. Sometimes it finds printers and lets me install them, sometimes it does not.

Windows 7 Laptop:
I am unable to add printers at all. It gets to the point where it says it is installing drivers, but always fails. Says cannot find proper driver.

Is there anything I am doing incorrectly with the network setup? Is there a good place/source to go for step by step instruction on how to create a good home network with different operating systems?

I appreciate any and all help.

Thank You
