BMatt December 6, 2009 at 07:10:17 Specs: Windows Vista
Set up a print share across a LAN between a laptop and PC (both running Vista, but PC is 64bit). The test pages print fine from the laptop across the network, but no other documents will print (eg word docs or web pages). The printer window on the main PC shows the document for a split second with a status of "spooling" then disappears and nothing prints. Any suggestions as to how to fix this problem?
I'm not sure as I was setting it up for someone else at the time and wanted to find the fix and go back to him to fix it. I can tell you that from word it printed to "Where: USB001" - I'm assuming this means the laptop thinks it is connected directly to the laptop's USB port and needs to be told to print through the wireless adapter? I'm just not sure where this is changed...
