Not Sharing pc for win 7

It may be because of the workgroup setting. WINXP uses a default workgroup value of MSHOME. WIN7 uses a default of WORKGROUP. What happens then is that all computers can connect to the network and access the internet, but shared files and folders will not be seen due to the two different workgroups,

To change the workgroup in WIN 7:

Click START.

Right click on COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES.


in the SYSTEM PROPERTIES window choose the COMPUTER NAME tab.

Observe "Workgroup" name.
To change, click the CHANGE button

Put the new workgroup name in the WORKGROUP block
(WINXP default is MSHOME)

Click OK

Close all windows

You will need to restart PC to set the new workgroup

Can't set up a my LexmarkX4650 printer to work on my wireless network. I have tried everything in the instruction book I just can't get it to connect.

Goto to the properties of the Printer - one of the tabs should be for sharing. Set the printer up for sharing. Now goto the each computer control panel and make workgroup called your intinals-home. This is important. All computers need to be a part of the same workgroup for it to see the printer. after all that is done - reboot everything and be paient - it will appearafter 5 minutes or so.

Printer sharing

This is assuming you are using Windows XP.
On the PC that will print to them, go to Printers and Faxes, open the window with them, right click and choose Sharing and Security
Click on the tab that says Sharing, and click the dot in "Share this printer"
Give it a simple name (like Laser1 or Inkjet1)
Click OK, and close the window.

On the other computers that you want to print to it, open My Network Places, Entire network, MS Windows network, <your workgroups name> **it works best if all of the computers in your network are part of the same workgroup**, look for the computer that is hosting the printers, double click it.
You will see the sharde printer name below the computer, right click on the printer and choose "Connect" say yes to the question that comes up about the connection security. When the flashlight goes out, you're connected.

Remember, for it to be a print server, that PC must be on.
