    I want to be able to print from my XP Computer to the Vista computer in the other room, wirelessly.

    XP Home
    Vista Home Premium
    New, Shared Printer

    Printer on the Vista computer is "shared"...I don't know anything about networks
    I use control panel: "add a printer" -> "A network printer" -> "Browse for printers" -> it shows some sort of window with icons that don't really mean much to me:

    One category is called "Workgroup" and when I click it, the Vista name of the computer in the other room shows up, but nothing happens when I double click that. I connected to a wireless printer a long time ago this way when one was connected to an XP computer, and the actual name of the printer would show up.

    Does anyone know how to do it?
