Windows 7: can't print from laptop

can't print from laptop

I have a desktop and a laptop, both running Windows 7-64. I've been able to print to either of my printers from the laptop, but now it says Server Offline and won't send print jobs out. The printers are set to Share.
I don't have a server, and the desktop is running (not sleeping). What happened, and how do I fix it?

Some times a reboot of both computers will sometimes do the trick.

It could be that the IP address might have been changed.

Okay, rebooting should have been an obvious attempt at fixing the problem. It didn't work, however. I also deleted and reinstalled the printer driver, and that didn't work, either.
I don't know if the IP address changed - I don't know what it was before, so I can't tell if it's changed.
