All right, one more question today. I have my laptop and home network configured to share a printer. This has been working great.

I want my wife's work laptop to be able to print to the shared printer, too, but when I try to set it up, it doesn't see the printer, or the home network.

Her laptop is part of a "domain" for work, while the home network is a "workgroup."

Is this the problem, and is it possible to get them to play nice together?

I've done some searching, and there are some suggestions out there regarding "net use" commands, but I'm hoping for something simpler.
