Wireless Network Printer

Specs: Windows XP
Greetings:
I have a home wireless network that serves a tower PC loaded with Windows XP SP3 and a laptop running Vista Home SP1.

I have a Canon printer that is directly connected to the laptop when it is home and which serves the tower PC thorugh the network.

The printer works fine except that I must re-install it on the tower PC each time I shut down the tower PC and then fire it back up.

Also, even when I cannot print from the tower PC, the printer still shows up in the folder accessible through the control panel. Nor do I get an error message when I send a print command from the tower PC. The printer simply does not print.

There is no event other thans shutting down the tower PC that triggers the problem that I have seen.

Any ideas?
Ed

"The printer works fine except that I must re-install it on the tower PC each time I shut down the tower PC and then fire it back up."

How do you install it?

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I delete the printer in the "Printers and Faxes" folder accessible through the control panel and then use the "add a printer" wizard available in the same folder.

Huh?
