Hi, I am interested in how to configure McAfee Internet Security to allow printing to a wireless printer. I am experiencing the same issue with the firewall blocking communication to the printer (tested because it is able to print once I turn off the firewall). Details:

Has this printer/firewall issue been resolved yet? My wireless network printer also won't work unless McAfee Firewall is turned off. This is the case with three different laptops, two running Windows 7 and one with XP. My wired desktop is running Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 64 bit. File sharing is also a problem - won't work unless McAfee Firewall is turned off. All was working well until late December, perhaps coinciding with a McAfee update. Ran the Virtual Technician, but can't seem to resolve this problem. Looking for help!

firstly have you got the printer spooler allowed in the firewall settings? ie Internet connections for programs?
spooler subsystem app
Yes, the printer spooler is indeed allowed in the firewall settings.
I have a Dell desktop with McAfee Security Center:
Thank you for the version details. Please try the below steps and update us the status:
If the above fails, Navigate to Navigation>History & Logs>Incoming Event and check the reasons under the events which blocked the communication with the local IP’s
