Upgrading my wireless router to N and a network of three XP's caused the printer
to fail when accessed remotely with the error message:
"RPC server unavailable"

The security was set to WEP in order to attempt to allow printing.

How do I fix this?

Try setting the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service to start automatically:

Click Start, Run and type Services.msc and press enter.
On the Service list, click Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service, and then click Startup.
Under Startup Type, click Automatic, and then click OK.

Make sure the dcom service is running, too.

Doubt it maybe the firewall from window or even the desktop installed doing the block. The RPC server is unavailable sometimes as the service couldn't function properly because it's dependancy (server service) couldn't start... Can try checking the dependencies through the server's properties and start those required dependancies to start the server service.
