printer problems/ homegroup

Thanks for any help.
Printer: Officejet Pro L7580 networked with an XP Pro Dell.
Was a working printer using Vista Business.
I think I have it entered into the Homegroup.
Been through all the goodies with no luck printing.
Have No Idea what I have done wrong.

Is it connected to the Dell XP PC? XP doesn't support Homegroup so that may be messing things up some for you. You may have to go into the advanced sharing options on the windows 7 PC to get it to work. You may have to add it the old fashioned way though "Add a printer" in Devices and Printers.
