I have a P2P Ethernet/wireless network. It is comprised of 5 nodes, and a wireless access point. Three (3) Ethernet nodes and two (2) wireless nodes. Three (3) of the nodes are Dell desktop PCís w/WinXP SP3, There is also two (2) dellís (one laptop & one desktop) w/Vista Home SP2. All five (5) nodes are visible on the network and can access each other. There are also two (2) shared printers, one (1) Dell 962 & one (1) Kodak ESP3. Three (3) of the desktop PCís can print to either of the printers.
The issue is that when the Dellís with Vista attempt to print to either printer, Neither are visable in the print window, and an error message is displayed indicating the drivers are not loaded. Although, when the Vista ďAdd A PrinterĒ window is open, both printers are visable. Have loaded the correct drivers from the Dell & Kodak CDís. Have downloaded the most recent drivers from Dell and Kodak web sites.
While searching the Net for a resolution, have noticed that many people are experiencing this same issue.
