Please check our network connection advance properties and make sure that the proper services are enable "File Sharing", "Network Sharing". Once you have done this reboot. Next you will need to check on the vista machine the security settings of the windows firewall. It's likely you will need to reduce the level of protection and allow the network protocols.

I cant plot from AutoCad 2006, using My hp


hmmm.. we only have two computers at my work connected to a router. the designjet has a network card going straight to it. i connect to the router wireless and it reads vista. my boss connects to the design jet thru the router as well with a network card rj cable with xp pro. as for our printer it can be connected via router and does work fine but my boss has it directely connected to his computer and i share it off of his system. then we also have a zerox machine connected via router as well. maybe your router is going out? try a new one or a better one and see if that fixes it. it maybe defected or time for a new one.......

if it was working before then maybe its the router.

You can connect your friends computer easily to the router. Whenever your friends wireless switch has be switched on it wil detect the router and it will ask for the password to connect to the router.

Yep. Vista sucks :-)

In the vista machine, you have to turn on a whole bunch of options. Right click Network, hilghlight properties and left click and it opens up Network and Sharing Center. Down at the bottom, you have a list of options. Start by turning on the options you need: File Sharing, Public File sharing, Printer Sharing etc. I'm pretty sure it's already done in the XP machine, but if not, check there too.

It should start to show network files between machines.

Sharing a printer between a Vista Home Premium and XP Media Center Computer


Hi cavman6

(01) Is the Vista computer able to access ANY shared resources at all on the XP machine?

(02) Are you running any firewall software (other than the firewall built into the operating system) on either computer?

(03) If you are, please, let us know which firewall software it is and, for now, please, disable it.

(04) Do both these computers have Internet access? (I'm assuming they do but I do need to ask.)

(05) Is the printer currently ONLINE and working properly w/ the XP machine?

IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE SO ALREADY, PLEASE, DO THE FOLLOWING:

(06) Assign *both* computers to the same network WORKGROUP.

(07) Ensure that file and print sharing are enabled on the XP machine. If you'd like, do so on the Vista system, too.
(A) How to on Windows XP
(B) How to on Windows Vista

(08) "Share" the printer on the XP machine (in printer properties).

(09) Can each computer now see itself AND the other computer on the network?

(10) Have you added your user name and password that you're using on the Vista system to the users list on the XP system?

(11) If you haven't done so already, please, do this. The user name should have a password associated w/ it. So, if you aren't using a password on your Vista system profile, assign one then add that user's credentials to the users list on the XP system.

Please, post back here w/ what you've tried and the results, your observations and any other comments or questions.

Thank you
BJ @:)
