  3. Yes, it had worked fine for the past year. Suddenly became unaccessible. No
    matter what steps i try to follow in the Network Connections Wizards and
    troubleshooting, the printer won't recognize the wireless computer. No
    trouble getting on-line. Any suggestions?

  4. Hi
    Printer sharing is part of the Network Sharing, it might be that your
    sharing between the two computer is Not functioning any more.
    Try to check/reconfigure the sharing system.
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,

    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
