I have a desktop PC and a labtop connected wirelessly via LINKSYS SRX a new
more powerful router and adapter card. Before I had the older LINKSYS
version. Then my sharing of the printer on the  desktop PC worked fine. Now
after the new router and adaptercard were installed the sharing no longer
worked. When I display the PRINTER/FAX it indicates that the printer is not
connected. Rightklicking and then clicking in 'Properties' produces: 'Printer
properties cannot be displayed. The print spooler service is not running'.
The sharing is all done properly. Since is worked before. Do I have a
firewall problem after the installation? I am at my wits end. Thanks for any
help.
