    I have a PC running windows Xp Pro, which has a deskjet 812c printer at attached to it. I would like to print to in from my MBP which conencts via a wireless router. I try to set up the printer, but i can not see the desktop when i set it up. In the printer set up, i go to more printers, select windows sharing and "Workgroup" which is what my PC is assigned to, but, it only sees "Macbook-Pro" which is what my laptop is called. Anyone know why i can't see the desktop? I ran the windows network setup and have teh printer shared.

    Thanks

    I've seen these documents, however the problem is before any of these can help me. I can't see my desktop pc, only the MBP under the workgroup drop down menu.
