Printer is network shared via wireless lan with 2 vista installed PCs and 1 XP. After a while drivers disappear from control panel.
The only solution at the moment is to install all over again.
Any comments please!

Does the driver disappear from the Vista or XP computer?

Make sure that you have installed the correct drivers compatible for Vista and XP computers.

Do you mean the printer disappears from Printers in Control Panel?
If so that doesn't mean that the printer driver disappeared.
You can check by doing the following:
1. Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Printers.
2. Right click in the white space and click "Server Properties...".
3. Click the Drivers tab.
4. Check if the printer driver appears in the list.

Also how are you adding the printer back when it disappears?

Thanks for your answers. Regarding driver it usually installs itself then asks for the installation CD for configuation.
