Sounds like your printer isn't configured for "sharing." Go to Control panel > Network and Sharing Center > Choose homegroup and sharing options. Make sure Printer has a check mark.

If you have any other computers, check them to see if you can print from them.

Have you made sure that the Printer is a shared resource.

Generally a printer will not be seen on a network if it is shared (allowed to be used by others).

From the computer (where the Printer is attached), locate the Printer by :

1. Click Start
2. Click Settings (or Control Panel)
3. Click Printers (or Printers and Faxes)
4. Highlight the printer you want to share.
5. Click File, Sharing (or Properties, and the Sharing tab).
6. Click to Share the printer.

The printer should now be available for you to see (from your laptop or anything connected to your network). The instructions above are for Windows XP (Vista).

I personally do not own Windows 7 and cannot provide you with exact steps for Windows 7.

However, SHARING is what you are looking for. If you can't achieve sharing the printer with the above steps, then use the HELP in Windows 7 to get the exact instructions.

If you need further assistance, let me know. Please rate. Regards,

Instal only one printer driver on the PC it is physically connected to. Preferably the Windows 7 PC (Latest OS). Unshare the printer, remove drivers from other PC's., then reboot al PC,s and re-share the printer. The PC's sharing should allow the Windows 7 PC to use it's driver, although they may request a disc for basic information about the printer.

Network x86 driver support on Vista 64 bit OS (Samsung Ml-2510)


That's right. You'll have to install the XP driver on an XP PC, and share it to the other XP machines that way, or Install the driver on each PC individually -you can't share a Vista driver with XP PC's.

Sharing srp350 network printer on win98 to winxp


You are correct with the conflict, although, it's a difference in drivers, i think what has happened is when you share a printer with xp, it installs the driver from the pc with the driver and printer attached, and as it is attached to a win98 pc, the full functions are probably unavailable,unlike an xp local driver.
