Home Network Printing Issues in Vista

By gregsabo ·
Can't print to network printer.

Wireless Home Network via LinkSys WRT54G
2 ea. Dell Laptops running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
3 ea. Acer Laptops running Windows Vista Home Basic
1 HP LaserJet 2600n hard wired to Router

I have connected to the printer with one Vista Premium laptop and can print via IP with no issues whatsoever. All other laptops can connect to the printer and could print a test page during setup. After initial setup however, cannot print jobs or test pages from any other computers.

I have checked firewall settings; printer sharing settings; network access; workgroup settings; current Vista print driver and I can't figure this out. I connected the printer via USB to a laptop running XP and shared on network with the same results. I can print from the one computer with no issues, but all others can only see and connect to the printer. They will not print test pages or jobs.

I've run out of ideas and patients, please advise.
