Anyone out there in cyberspace?

I have a Toshiba Satellite M30-106 mobile laptop, brilliant machine, but I am having problems with it printing wirelessly to our shared printer on our home network. Also I have tried to set it up to use my mobile to gain access to the web via the bluetooth connection while on the road,without success. Any suggestions on a cure gladly appreciated?

Just to let you know there is life out there.

only suggestion i have is to enable file and printer sharing on the network connections but that should be done when you run the network wizard, right click on the network connection and goto properties. see if the file and printer sharing is enabled.

also have a closer look in the other windows updates as I know there are ones relating to your problem.

Do you have firewalls enabled?

Perhaps the question should be -- is Barny still out there -- this was posted Wednesday with nothing further heard from him since, despite a few questions asked of him.

I wonder if we had a competition who could bring to the top the oldest unticked thread.

Good game, good game!!

Powerless, yes I have a firewall, does this cause a problem?


Yes turn it off and try it again.

If it works you'll then have to configure the firewall to allow the printing.

What firewall do you have?

Still here Mr Grummit, Wife threatens divorce if problem unsolved hence asking you guys out there for help! Wife is a Divorce Lawyer! Regards, Barney.

My Emailed reply:

Was she a divorce lawyer before she married you?

windows xp, powerless. Did have Norton enabled but thought this may cause problems so disabled it and configured xp firewall instead to enable a shared printer on my network.


Ah so you've fixed it?
