I was asked to add two win xp pc's to an existing small office network. Also to add an Orange Livebox (adsl router) to provide internet access to each pc. A Canon ir2570 colour laser stand alone photocopier/printer is connected ethernet to the network. When I arrived I found that two of the pc's were Win 98 systems. All items are interconnected through an 8 port switch.
I managed to enable internet access to the XP systems and the Win 98 pc's already were able to print to the Canon laser. My problem is that I was not able to add printer access, via the network, to the XP boxes. I ran the printer set-up wizard but no printers appeared that could be configured.
Bearing in mind that all cabling must be ok because the xp pc's had now got internet access via the switch and router and the win 98 pc's could print ok via the switch I just cannot work out why I cannot see the laser from either of the two xp systems. What have I missed?
