Anyone out there got a home network with a printer that works from a client computer? If so, how the feck do you configure it? I mean please would you be so kind as to explain how to configure it? I have a home nework of two computers: one XP and one ME. The network works fine with file sharing and internet connection sharing. I have a Lexmark Z54 attached to the Xp machine but I cant get the Me machine to communicate with it. Ideas suggestions would keenly welcomed and deeply appreciated.I have done all of the obvious things and now am at a total loss.
Yes I have done as both of you suggest. Yes you can see the printer from the ME machine but when I ask it to print, the printers native interface appears and tells me the computer cannot communicate with the printer, check it is swiched on and the cables are plugged in.
Have eventually succeeded. Loaded driver onto 2nd machine. Went through add new printer[via network box] . Check what port your printer is installed on through printer properties you may have to add this onto your 2nd machine.
I say this because not sure whether adding this solved the problem.
