I noted that in my first response at http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6122_102-0.html?forumID=44&threadID=198031&messageID=2129068 but it took many back and forths for the member to discover not only the Windows firewall but one in their router. The issue of accounts is discussed as well.
As to the floppy drive, USB floppy drives are widely available and cheaper than a trip to a repair counter.
My network consists of three computers, all using Windows XP. The
third computer, a notebook, uses xp home edition. The network is
working good; but I cannot get the notebook to access the printer.
The router is the Linksys WRT300N. The network security is enabled.
I cannot use a floppy for the notebook, because there is no floppy
drive on the notebook. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Each
time I run the printer setup wizard, it says something about being
unable to connect to the printer, etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
