    My printer is wired to a wireless router/modem.
    I can print from my Dell PC notebook with WIFI card.
    I can print from my Dell PC desktop wired to the router/modem.
    I can print from my MacBook Pro with Airport but I cant print from Parallels/XP on this same PC.
    I tried Bonjour on the Parallels/XP but nothing seems to work.
    I installed the Xerox driver from the CD that came with the printer on Parallels/XP, but Parallels/XP can't even find it.
    Can anyone help me?

    Can you ping the printer's IP from OS X and your VM?

    And, which network mode do you use in Parallels? To check it,
    1. Click Edit->Virtual Machine... when your VM is not powered on.
    2. Select Network Adapter 1 in left pane.
    3. Find out what is selected in Emulation group in right pane.

    If it's Shared Networking, try setting it to Bridged mode and check if you can see the printer after powering on the VM.

    Please move to USB Printer Problems

    Please add these issues to the "USB Printer Problems" link.

    We have a trail of issue printers there.
