I just set up a wireless network, connecting my XP (Home) desktop directly to a wireless router, and my Win 98SE notebook via wireless adapter. I finally got the PC's to "see" each other through the ZoneAlarm firewall, but the notebook still cannot see the printers that are connected to the desktop PC.

I have "shared" the printers on the XP machine, and can see the "hand" holding the printer icons, so I know they are shared -- but the notebook still cannot see them. I have also installed File and Print Sharing for Microsoft Networks on both machines, and in fact file sharing is working fine.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
