Windows 7: 7 Pro Homegroup printer issue

7 Pro Homegroup printer issue

Ive got the "retail" version of Windows 7 pro running on my 2 computers here at work, one of which is a laptop that is also used on the mall's free wireless network. When we plug in via ethernet and rejoin the homegroup, it automatically picks the shared printer back up, but when we try to print it stalls, and we have to reboot the back office computer to get it printing.

Tried powering the laptop off and back on with the ethernet attached, still same result.

As smart as you guys are here, I know someone will have the correct answer, cause Im stumped.
