I've searched dozens of forums, including this one and still can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. We've got a home network with a wireless Linksys router. My wife's XP machine is connected via ethernet to the Linksys router. We have an HP Laser Jet that is connected to that same XP machine via USB. Her firewall is set to allow file and printer sharing and the HP printer is set for sharing.

My iMac running 10.5.4 is connected to the network wirelessly via Airport. In System Preference I have both File Sharing and Print Sharing selected. Yet, when I go System Preferences>Print & Fax>Add Printer>Windows, I see nothing. No network name, no printers, nothing.

I've plugged the HP directly into my iMac and it worked flawlessly. Is there something bonehead obvious that I'm missing??
QUOTE Thanks
