I have a small network with some wireless connections and a couple wired connections.  Several of the computers are XP and my newer laptop which connects wirelessly.  I also have a printer that connects via a wireless connection  --- to which one of my computers can printer.  On my two XP machines --  I have shared the C-drives and changed the Admin passwords to be the same and enable file and printer sharing.  However I am having a problem trying to XP machines to have access to the wireless printer?  The objective is for all of these computers to be able to print -- How can I change the workgroup and network setting somehow so that this can happen.
