Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

Can't connect network printer to Windows XP laptop

I have a home workgroup. two printers are attached to one computer; a third printer is a network printer, cable-connected directly to the Netgear router. Two XP laptops are wirelessly connected to the network. They connect to all three printers (bring up Add Printer Wizard, browse for printer; printers show up in the Shared Printers window and i can hook up to them). A third XP laptop is also wirelessly connected to the network. When I run the Add Printer wizard, only the Microsoft Windows Network tag shows up in the Shared Printers window. Can't attach any printers. Need to attach all three. can you help?

Can't find printer on network


1.How are you attaching to the network printer from your daughters computer? IP address, or by the name of the printer...Also make sure you check you are attaching to the network printer, and not local printer.

2. Install the Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 protocol on both computers by clicking install on your LAN properties, then restart PC. This should work!

Adding printer


Make sure that no firewalls are running or atleast you're trusting your internal network. Sometimes you might have to create an account for the other user to connect to the printer locally and give them manage rights. make sure both computers are on the same workgroup so you don't have to play around with rights and security settings that way you could browse the machine via network neighborhood and add the printer easily.

Good luck

Network printer problem


1. How are these two computers networked? Through a router, or by a crossover cable?

2. Is the network workgroup the same on both computers?

3. Have you tried turning off any firewalls or rerunning their workgroup setup?

4. Remember, to share the printer the host computer must be on. Is it?

5. Did you right click on that printer and choose share this on the network? Also: the lack of a login prompt is probably the problem. To see,
