Compuiter keeps disapearing from my computer

I work in an office with several people. We all have laptops and a wireless environment where we share a printer. What would cause my co-workers printer to be erased off his laptop when no one else in the office does? This has happenened several Mondays in a row. Other that it being deleted from his computer -is there a way that someone could cause this to happen as a joke?

Wireless... this could be because the PC is "turning off" the Wifi devices, check for this on the WIFI card properties..

I have my internet Broadband connection in my office .And I want to share this broadband connection network into my home through WiFi . But the problem is that my home is almost 1 mile away from my office...

No. Wifi has a distance of 120 feet indoors and 300 feet outdoors in a perfect environment.

Even if you were able to install wireless repeaters for the wifi you will experience many networking issues.

If you wish to share your internet you may want to look into a mobile hotspot. You can take that device anywhere where the service provider is covering.

My wife's laptop was connected to the network as were several other computers without a problem, however her office changed some settings and in the process wiped her C: drive. Now we are unable to connect...

Does the laptop have a wireless adapter. If so, go to network connections in the Control Panel and enable the adapter, Then click on "View wireless networks" click connect and type in the the security key if there is one.

Xbox live on this laptop

I assume you have a crossover ethernet cable.
put the my network places on your desktop.
right click on desktop/properties/desktop/customize desktop/tic
then on the network places icon on desktop right click/properties
right click on wireless and bridge devices
they are now sharing the same ip
be sure and remove /delete bridge when not sharing as the ip will stick forever likely.
that should do it if you need more info /open my computer and hit help and search for internet connection sharing as the firewall may need to be configured.

Printer will not network

Hi Stukie, Something you can try. Install the downloaded "newest" driver in all you PCs and laptops even if they cannot see or share with the PC print server. If you can successfully install on each PC, then you try changing the port setting of the printer on each PC. Go to Start, Printers and Faxes, Right click on the HP LaserJet 1000 (assuming you were able to install on every PC), click on Properties, click on Ports Tab, Click on Add Port, Double click Standard TCP/IP Port. A new window will pop up > Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard, in the IP Address, type in the IP add of the PC where the printer is installed, Port Name can be any name but try the Shared Name of the Printer, Next and follow all other instructions. Hope this works for you and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
