Shared computer doesn't show up

Specs: Windows XP
I recently bought a new printer, and want to get it shatred with my laptop. Let's say the printer is connected to Computer 1. I want to be able to print wirelessly with it from Computer 2. On Computer 1, Both Computers show up in the Add a Printer wizard, as well as their printers (Computer 2's "printer" is some fax thing installed by default with the computer that I shared for testing purposes.). On Computer 2, Computer 1 (with the real printer) shows up in the wizard, but not it's printer. Computer 2 also shows up on Computer 2, as well as it's "printer". Why can I not find the real printer?

You need to share the printer itself and then install the printer with the same name on the second computer. Use browse to find the printer.
