Can use the printer if the laptop is connected to the router but can't when connected wirelessly confused2

The lap top can't see the printer.

Any ideas?

Thanks

edit- sorted- I hadn't put the laptops wireless card in the trusted zone:)

Can you see the printer on the network?

I'm guessing you've run the Wizard, on both PC's?

Are your NIC's "trusted" in each firewall?

Have you allowed access through firewalls?

Have you done all this?

Home pc with XP home, Belkin router, laptop with XP pro.

Lap top connects to network and can use internet. I want to share the USB printer which is connected to my main pc with the laptop. I thought I'd done everything right but can't get it to work-any ideas??

Thanks
