I setup a wireless network in my home.  I have Win XP on the "main desktop" and Win 2000 on the "remote" desktop.  My internet provider uses DSL.  I am using the Linksys Broadband Router Wireless-G 2.4GHz.  I can access the internet from the "remote" desktop.
I can access the internet from the "remote" and "main" desktop.  But I can only print from the "main" desktop.  Can someone help.

    1.share the printer
    on the main machine (the one the printer is attached to,) go to the printer, and right click on it and share it, give it a name
    then on the other machine go to add printer, network printer, browse to the printer you have shared and add it, install the drivers, and test
