    Hi Guys,
    Using help I found in your forums, I managed to set up my D-Link DSL-G604T wireless router (previously used only for wireless internet) to allow file transfer between my laptop (see Computer Specs) and the family computer (Compaq Presario S5500UK). Thanks for this.(y)

    While doing this, I thought I found a way to wireless print. The printer (Epson Stylus Photo RX425) is attached to the family computer. Until then, I thought I needed a Print Server, but I found the printer's details on the list of printers on "Add a new printer" in Control Panel. It connects fine but when I try to print to it, a balloon pops up in the Task Bar saying: "This document failed to print". I have attached a print screen of the balloon.

    I'll check back regularly to give any extra information you need.

    Cheers
    Andy

    do you have a firewall - perhaps that is blocking - although i would expect it not to show the printer
