    Okay, I own a kodak all in one 5300. It's USB interfaced through my desktop computer. My desktop runs windows XP SP2.

    I wish to print wirelessly on my laptop (Vista 64bit).

    I matched up the workgroup name on the two computers.

    I set up printer shareing on both computers.

    I set the XP computer to share my particular printer.

    I unfirewalled both comps.

    and

    I ran the network set up on both comps to set everthing even.

    When I click to add a new printer my printer is listed, but, upon double clicking of the printer icon an error message apears saying "cannot connect to printer, make sure you have typed the name correctly and that the printer is conected" It is connected by the way.

    Please help

    Aaron
