Hi. I have a hp pavillion pc running windows xp with a hp photosmart printer connected to it. The pc is also connected to a belkin wireless router and a linksys modem. I also have a laptop in the nextroom running windows xp also. the laptop is connected to the belkin wireless router via a wireless connection. i get internet just fine on the laptop. I used to be able to access the printer from the laptop but something has gone haywire and the two computers cannot see each other on the network anymore. I have run the network setup wizard on both computers and the workgroup is named identically on both. The laptop sees the workgroup but the pc comes up with an errror message that says my workgroup is not accessible, I might not have network permissions see my network administrator etc. All I really want to do is access the printer from my laptop. The printer is set up for sharing. please help me.!!!!

This is almost always a firewall issue.
Check your settings.
Sometimes, reinstalling the printer helps.
