Help with Epson Stylus 1400

So basicly I have a printer at home that is conected to a desktop and enabled the printer to share over my network. The computer that its connected to is currently up to date with all the drivers. When I want to print form my laptop it prints gibberish. The problem and the only thing I dont understand is when I download the drivers for the printers on my laptop, The Epson config comes up and asks me to update. Why do i have to update since the driver is already up to date on my desktop? Also if I want to update the drivers on my laptop, I have to manually choose the port, which port do I choose? USB0001 is already taken from the computer downstairs but keep in mind im doing this over my network on my laptop. so which port do I choose?

Its connected to my desktop via USB, I am using that deskstop as a server so I enabled that printer for sharing under printer prefrences. When I print from my laptop its prints gibberish. I am assuming its a driver? The problem is the drivers is updated to the desktop but its asking me to update it on my laptop....

And have you updated it on the laptop and it doesn't work, is that what you are saying ?

I'm sure if you hang in there one of the experts will come along and be able to give you more help with the problem. I don't have my printers networked so can't really be much help to you.
Hope you manage to get the help you need and get it fixed.

Hello EvolutionZero welcome to sevenforums. Chcek this tutorial - Shared Printer Setting Up for XP, Vista, and Windows 7 - Vista Forums

The other this worth mentioning is that you're not "networked" per se, what you are actually doing is sharing the printer from your desktop with your laptop since the printer is physically connected to the desktop.

That printer isn't "network" capable since it has no network card built into/or attached to it.

Hope this helps.
