I have a Dell 8250 with Windows XP connected to a Belkin F5D7230-4 (version 4000) router which provides internet access to an Imac running OS-X 10.2.8.

I want to also set up a home network that allows the Imac to print directly to either of the HP printers connected to the Dell.

In using the XP Network Setup Wizard, I get an error at the conclusion that says:
"An error occurred during the configuration of the netowork on this computer. You can configure your network manually, or you can run the wizard again with different settings."

I suspect the problem may lie in the setup wizard. When I choose the internet connection "belloli", the wizard still shows that internet connection 1394 is selected.

Q: How do I properly set up printer sharing, and hopefully file sharing, between these two systems?

Thank you.
