Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have an issue with a network printer. I have a Brother MFC 8440 connected to a HP laptop with Vista 64 via a US Robotics 9108 wireless router with a USB/printer port. The printer works connected directly to the laptop and previously worked via the wireless router. However, it has now stopped working. I get a ?printing? status in the printer window which eventually becomes ?Error ? Printing?. This began happening sometime after my attempt to tweak my system, so obviously I did something stupid.


Answers :

Check the print spooler under running processes/services. if it shows running. turn it off, wait until it shows not running and restart.

Compaq Presario 2232US. The printer on the Desk Top works. From the Desktop, I have 'shared' the printer. From the Laptop, (Compaq)under Control Panel, Printers, the printer Icon is there, however, I cannot print (via wireless) from the laptop. The printer icon shows there are jobs waiting and READY. The lapTop (via a router) can access the Internet Explore. My understanding is I should be able to print using the 'wireless conection' and need not set-up a Network Connection. True?
