How about buying a new printer with wireless capabilties? They aren't very expensive and you need not do much with setting it up.

Actually it would be cheaper buying a bluetooth adapter for the netbook. Bottom line though, it should work just like all the other computers on the network does.

Well between here, MS Answers forum and MS Technet, we can't find a solution. My guess is that Windows starter may end being the culrit. So I just decided to stop fighting it (I hate not figuring it out) and ordered a Bluetooth USB adapter for my wife's Dell Mini that has the Win7 Starter on it.

I've already got a bluetooth adapter in the slot on the printer.
