Problems with Network Prining

I have a PC on my network that wont print to a network printer.  All the other pc's on the network are printing just fine. I can attach to the printer eather through network  places or active dirictry in the add printers wizard. but when I send a test print from this one work station it never prints. it dosent even show up in the print que and there are no errors.

Can you access the properties on that printer through the Printers and Faxes window?

Can you print to any other printer networked or local?

Yes I can get to the Properites on the printer. After I conect to a printer on the work station I  right click on the printer and click print test page . I can print to a local printer that is attach via usb to the pc.

Can you print to another network printer?

I am trying to determine if it is just this one printer or if you have issues printing period. I realize its the computer having issues but we need to determine if it just has issues with one printer or all printers.

It seems to be all  network printers. I have 2 printers in this building a color laser and a sharp copier the problem is consistant for both printers.

Try creating a local port for the printer and see if you can attach it via that local port instead of connecting to the shared printer.
