Question about Other Network Devices
I have 3 computers, all ar going threw a linksys router to a cable modem.
All have internet access!
computer 1 has a printer that is set to share!
computer 2 and 3 I have been sucessfule in seting up a home network.
but when I run Network setup wizard (win XP) it asks to select conection method. I do so, then it asks for secripton and name, then network name, I also enter this.now it asks file and print sharing question, I also answer yes.
It says ready to apply network setting, I hit NEXT and it begins to set it up!
then it stops and says: cannot complete network setup wizard.
error occured during cinfiguration of the network on this computer.
you can configure network manualy or run setup with differnt settings!
I have tried every setting there is and dont know how to manually set up!
I have internet on all 3 comps!
the other 2 comps see the #1 computer but can not find a pathway to it!
i have had 2 diff motherboards on this comp and both did same thing.
if you need anyother info please just ask!
Sounds like something is not right with the sharing... Assuming that computer 1 (the computer with the printer) is sharing and everything is set correctly, I would change the workgroup name. Instead of using "MSHOME" use say some basic word like "example" or some other name.
Ironically for my workgroup here I call it "StarWars"
needless to say my printers and everything shares just perfect. When you use "MShome" there's restrictions on what XP professional and XP home machines see on the network. I changed the workgroup name and that solved that problem.
Be sure to put all computers on the same workgroup name that you pick. You can even choose your first name if you want.
