Can't get wireless printer to work-help me b4 I lose it!

I have a Toshiba laptop w/windows XP home, remotely connected to my Mom's cable using a linksys router WRT54G w/her HP Pavillion desktop with windows millenium and her HP printer. It was working last year. Since then I have also added cable at my home using a linksys router WRT54G connected to my desktop which is an e-machine w/windows media center and an HP printer. I recently had Best Buy come in because I had screwed up my connection at home. He told me he hadn't changed anything at my Mom's and that all I would have to do is to specify her printer when I print at her home. Not true. I am trying to send a copy of a works spreadsheet. I pull up spreadsheet, go to file menu, then click print, when print screen appears I change to Mom's printer, then OK. Get "microsoft works" window that says "Cannot print the document. Close other applications and check that you have specified the correct printer port, then try again." Still doesn't work. I'm soooo frustrated, I hope someone can help. Thanks so much in advance for any assistance I am given.
