XP Home SP2, networking issue

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Robert J. Lafayette, Sep 26, 2007.

  1. Two computers A and B.
    Laser printer,

    Printer to print from computer A.

    Webtel Wireless router (model 327w) serves both computers A and B.

    Verizon Internet provider.

    Printing and networking worked for a while printing from A and that is the
    configuration I wish to maintain.

    I lost the networking capability when had to reinstall drivers since the
    older driver kept crashing my system(s) in both computers.


    Please help me reestablish the networking in total detail on all steps,

    and to eliminate traces of old setup as it shows up in Add Printer setup in
    computer B dialog box for which there are now three (3) setups for the
    printer, showing my computer name and I can not get computer A and C to
    link.

    How can i really start from scratch?



    Hope this makes sense.

  3. Hi
    Hi
    Successful Sharing and network printing involves some general consideration
    in Network settings, http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html

    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
    Vista File and Printer Sharing-
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/network/evaluate/vista_fp.mspx
    Basic XP -
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/winxppro/maintain/filesharing.mspx
    Advanced XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;304040
    Printer Sharing XP -
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/expert/honeycutt_july2.mspx
    Windows Native Firewall setting for Sharing XP -
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/875357
    Windows XP patch for Sharing with Vista -
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922120

    After configuring every thing correctly delete icons and links that are
    residuals of the old Network.
    If some thing is Not delete able leave it alone, it would disappear after a
    while when the Network stabilizes.

  5. The main issue was the Firewall and Anti Virus.

    Once I turned them TEMPORARILY OFF ,

    XP did the rest and I hard connected the printer to computer A and a test
    page printed the request sent via computer B to printer connected to
    computer A.

    Thank you,
    Robert
