    I have set up a mshome network for my main xp.home pc with Epson SX415 printer connected to it and 1 x laptop win7 and one laptop xp pro - both wireless connections. (Netgear DGN2000 wireless router)
    Printer works on pc and win7 wireless laptop - but NOT on xp pro wireless laptop. Box comes up showing bar of print going to printer then nothing happens except screen showing loading (Epson printer) page for printing then it disappears and nothing happens.
    I notice that on 'my network places' the only icons are shared docs folders - no printers!
    help appreciated
