Ok, so long story short, I have a linksys wireless router... my desktop and laser printer are plugged directly into the router, and my laptop is connected via wireless. I've been able to print from both computers on the laser printer for months. Today I moved the printer to the other side of the room, now all of a sudden the laptop can't connect to the printer, but the desktop still prints just fine. I've re-installed, restarted, reset and rebooted EVERYTHING dozens of times. Still no luck. I just don't understand.

Any ideas?

Ahh! I got it!

If anyone's interested, I disabled Norton Internet Security to install the printer, and it enabled it's self after a restart, and the settings didn't allow my laptop to access the printer. All I had to do was add the printer's IP address to the list and BAM! It works.
