How can I connect my work computer on a domain to a printer on a workgroup, its all on 2wire home networking.
Posted on 2004-09-30
I have a problem, my dads laptop is running Windows 2000 (NT edition or etc.) We have 2 computers on a workgroup called home, one of which has a Lexmark-Z35 Printer on it. The other computer can connect and print to the printer fine, but because the laptop is on a domain, it cannot. Is there a way around this? He needs to be connected to his domain for work-related purposes. We tried changing that once, but that just resulted in us calling the company to reset his user settings. I tried changing our workgroupname to corp.comp.com (his domain), but no luck. Im cluless now, could anyone help me out? Thanks alot.
The 2 computer are on WindowsXp Pro and the Laptop is running Windows 2000.
The broadband connection is sbc dsl, 2wire wireless homenetworking. His laptop is wireless.
