Trying this again.
Wireless D-Link DWA-140, Firmware 3.0, DIR-625
NM version 5.5
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system
Kaspersky Anti-virus 2010
NM version 4.0
Norton Security Suite with Comcast
Printer attached by serial port--HP Photosmart 1115 series
Trying to set up a network printer so I can print from my laptop. NM map is showing printer on desktop with a yellow directional arrow going both ways. When I try to set up the printer windows can't find a driver for the printer on the network. I can locate them manually but that does not seem to work. I created a new port on the desktop where I have \\computername\\printername and that does not work. There are no drivers for this printer to work in Windows 7--do I need to install the printer drivers on my laptop? Is this a lost cause trying to get this printer to work through the network? The printer queue will pop-up on the laptop?? I hope I included enough information.

As your Printer is installed on a Windows XP computer and you are trying to Map the Printer on your Windows 7 Computer, To make your Printer working on your Windows 7 computer you need to install the drivers for your Printer on windows 7 then only it will work.
