Can't get wireless laptop to see printer through xp using Kaspersky

Hi,
Can't get wireless laptop to see printer through xp pc using Kaspersky.  Was able to ping laptop and xp pc both ways.  Printer worked and then when I rebooted the printer failed to print [probably Kaspersky].

Printer works fine with the xp pc it is directly connected to using a cable  While setting up the latptop to print, assigning  ports became quite a confusing issue. Please advise.

Thanks,
Joe

Hi

Have you set the printer on the computer it is installed on to SHARED?

Check also that you can still ping between the two computers and that the one with the printer has not changed IP address.

Is the Microsoft firewall on the XP computer running - this is likely to block access to the other computer if on.

Mike
