I have 2 computers that can both access online they are in the same workgroup also. I am trying to share the printer so the 2 pcs can print instead of one. I dont have the printer hooked up by the router it is hooked up on to the office pc thru usb. On the office pc i goto control panel and then to printers and share the printer then I goto the other pc in the kitchen and try to browse for the printer it will not find the printer. I try to access it using Ip address no luck.
On both of the machines I cant ping either pc. On the machine in the kitchen I cant ping host name either. I have turned of the firewalls and tried it still no luck. Also in my network places when i go in to it on the left where you can view workgroup computer it wont let me view.it will say cant view workgroup pc's. Both pcs are on the same workgroup. I'm not by the pcs now I wont be for a few days. I'm looking for ideas on anything else I can try. All help is appreciated Thanks
