I have the printer shared I see it on my homegroup I have updated to the windows 7 drivers but when I try to connect to my printer with my laptop over the network it says can not connect then it say can not find drivers over the network. What have I done wrong? both computers are running windows 7 and I have undated drivers on both computers the printer is hooked up to my host computer with usb.

If you share a folder on the win7 box hosting the printer can you access it?
If you go into the printer properties on your win7 box what is the port set to? \\win7hostname\printersharename or is it to lpt1?
