Windows 7: Shared Network Printer wireless connection issue

Shared Network Printer wireless connection issue


I have a Win 7 desktop computer with a shared printer attached. I have three Win 7 laptops. Two connect without issue through their Wireless LAN card and Ethernet to the shared network printer without issue.

However the third laptop connects to the shared by wired ethernet fine but the printer shows as offline when connected wireless. All other services such as internet and email work fine via wireless just this printer is the issue. If I re-install the driver it works fine the first time but then after a reboot it show as offline.

I have checked the wireless settings on all three and they are the same. Strange it works fine after reboot with the wired ethernet but not wireless.

ANy help appreciated
