which printer you are using and is this printer directly connected to switch ( LAN) or its connected /installed on pc and shared..?
Reshare this printer and check the user permissons issue or any printer driver software so upgrade and install the printer driver.Disable the xp sp2 firewall or uninstall the personel firewall sftwares .
And check with \\Ip address( pc adress where printer is connected)\  and then press enter if it shows the printer shared name then right click to printer and click on connect.Also check the workgroup/domain network configuration properly.

If its directly connete to LAN then configure that printer in your network( workgroup or domain)by assign the IP address to that printer with in your network range.



Regards,

Try hardcoding the printer in: \\xpmachine\printer in the printer setup where you go to browse.

run the network setup wizard and make sure that you turn on file and printer sharing.
