Home Networking problem

(OP)
I recently purchased a linksys wireless-n router and I have a couple of machines that access this router for the internet.  There's also a Printer in this equation that is connected to my laptop.  I've shared this printer, configured the machines to be in the same workgroup, etc but I still can't see the printer on the other machines.  What am I missing here?  Thanks.

RE: Home Networking problem

Client for microsoft windows needs to be installed and also file and printer sharing need to be enabled.  Have both of these been done?
