Network printer not recognised

  stickleback 14:55 23 Oct 2004

I have an ethernet network with a HP 5150 installed on a Mesh PC (Windows XP). Tried to network via a Gateway PC (Windows Me) but will not work. Have checked all settings such as sharing, network path, etc.

I have managed to install the printer on the Gateway PC and networked OK from the Mesh but this is slower as Gateway is USB 1.

Any ideas on how I can make it work from the Mesh to use th advantages of the USB 2 port? If all esle fails I may install a USB 2 card on the Gateway PC.
