Try removing the network printer from the computer(s) and readding it according to my "how-to" guide. To see the how-to, click on my name and look for the "Installing a Network Printer: version 2" guide and read it.

I just tried and it worked for me. Try again or click on the "How-tos" menu on the right, it can be reached through the main "How-tos" forum. Just look for my name.

printer shows on lap top- all boxes for sharing are checked and firewlls disabled. settings are indentical on both computers.
can't find printer even though it is installed. won't show contents of other computer (either computer) same workgroup name
only thing not tried is to directly conect printer to laptop and allow the laptop to detect printer manually. am reluctant to rename printer- prefer to keep names so i can remember. why would it work, then not work???

"can't find printer even though it is installed"

On the laptop go into the printers properties and ports. Is what is listed for port the following?

\\pcsharingprintername\printersharename ???

If not it explains the printer not found message assuming the pc and the printer were on at the time of the test.
