I have a Photosmart C309a on a home wireless network along with two Windows XP and one Vista computer. Both XP machines are able to access the printer functions through both wire and wireless access. However, attempts to access the printer from the Vista machine through the wireless network fails. Only when the Vista computer is connected to the network via a wire is it able to access the printer.
I've opened every TCP and UDP port I can find associated with the printer and gave all the programs in the HP\Digital Imaging\bin folder full access to the network. Nothing seems to work.
I've tried deactivating both the Windows and McAfee firewalls with no effect.
Anybody got any other ideas?

I've opened up all the suggested ports under all the protocols plus a few others in the bargain. No cigar. I've tried deactivating the firewalls all together. Still no joy.
