Cannot Network printers on FIOS system

I was using Verizon DSL with my desktop (Vista) wired to the router and my laptop (XP) networked to choose any of three printers connected to my desktop. We recently changed to Verizon FIOS and they installed a wireless router in the other room. Both computers connect wireless to the internet OK. I cannot get the Home network to allow each computer to see each other. I have reinstalled the Home Network but still nothing.

    Both computers use the wireless router and I have both set to printer and file sharing. I have also tried turning off the firewall on both and still no connection.

    I do not know how to try a ping to the other computer.

    With both computers firewall off, I tried ping from both computers and both time out with no response from the other one.

If both computers are connected to the router. Try turning off the firewall on both computers first. normally its firewalls blocking file and printer sharing that block the connection.

    Computer 1.

    Click start then run then type in CMD then click ok in the black window type in

    IPCONFIG then hit ENTER Copy down your IP address



    Computer 2.

    Click start then run then type in CMD then click ok

    Type in PING IPADDRESS then hit Enter. Do you get replies or request timed out.





    Reverse the instructions and get the IP for computer 2 and ping from computer 1

    Then that means that there is still some other firewall on the computer. Or another option is uninstall the firewall. Sometimes with the firewall off it still runs in the background this is especially true of Norton

Hi there, I am using Window xp on my desktop and window 7 on my laptop. Lan card on desktop is quantum lan card QHM8100R3D. Problem: I have Belkin F5D7234-4 Router and when i tried to connect...


Verify that you haven't manually set the IP address of the desktop machine to an IP address that conflicts with another device on your network.
If this is the case, change the network settings to use Automatic or DHCP IP address assignment.
If this doesn't fix the issue, I suggest trying a different network card than the QHM8100R3D to see if that addresses the issue.

Laptop can't connect to DSL-G604T


You need to configure your router and use WPA encryption so that all accessing device can connect to it.


The obvious reason why the dell laptop can't connect is because of the WPA encryption set. It is different compared with what your router is actually broadcasting: WPA2.

So you can choose one of the 2 things to alter. Change your router's WPA2 encryption to WPA or change your Dell's setup to WPA2.

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
