I am trying to get a connection to a Win XP Machine that has a printer connected to it through the wi-fi.  This used to work with an old Belken router, but we recently switched to a D-Link that has better performance and range.  Here is the basic configuration:

Win 7 Laptop - - - (wireless) - - > D-Link Router ------(wired)---->Win XP Machine ---------(USB port)----> Printer

I have tried setting up a new workgroup, changing settings in the router, but I can't get it to work.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

Can the win7 machine see the winXP machine through the network at all? If they can see each other already try disabling the printer share on the XP machine, re-booting, and then re-enable it.
