Assigning "types" to Wireless Devices

My Problem:  When I check "My Home Network", my HP Wireless Printer keeps defaulting as another "computer". I keep naming it as a "Printer" from the pulldown list, but it later defaults as a "computer" reminding me that it doesn't have McAfee protection (well, it can't because it's a printer). I also have our Wii on the network, but it does not have this problem. What can I do to remedy this?

Here's what I have:  Windows 7 on PC, Vista on Laptop, McAfee Total Protection 2009 (active till Sept. 2010), HP Photosmart c4750 printer/copier/scanner, Airlink 101 router, and AT&T DSL.
