I have a Toshiba P305-S8820 Satellite running Vista Home Premium and when I try to add a wireless printer it gives me a "cannot load wizard pages for TCP/IP port" error. When I try to create a new port, Standard TCP/IP port is not on drop-down list. Is this a registry problem and if so, how can I get the TCP/IP port back into my registry?

Open your printers folder. Then File -> Server Properties -> Ports Tab. Can you add a TCP/IP port here? If so, then the Wireless Printer wizard is not looking for a TCP/IP port. If you cannot add a TCP/IP port in the printers folder, then something else has gone wrong.
