Accessing a printer on a network
Posted on 2006-11-21
OK, this is a bit complex, so I will try to give all the details right off so I do not have to keep responding to questions.
I need to access a printer attached to a PC on my network. I have three PC's all connected to an 8 port hub. That hub is attached to a Cisco router and it is attached to a DSL modem. Well, just to complicate things, my boss decides to add a laptop. It is connceted wirelssly to a Dlink wirelss router that is connected to the hub also. It is connected using the WAN port and a straight through cable to an empty port on the hub. Works great, laptop has internet. BUT, it cannot access the printer on one of the PC's. The wireless router has an address of 192.168.0.100. The rest of the network has addresses of 10.42.4.88, etc. All the PC's can use the printer on the one PC, but the laptop cannot even see the PC's. All computers are running XP Home SP2.
How can I get the laptop to access the printer?
