|Thank you for your quick feedback, Wanderer. |
I used the same printer name that showed up on one of the Vista computers. The printer got the IP address directly from the printer port. Should it be entered manually?
By the way, the XP computer had a wired connection with the router when I ran into this problem. As an experiment, I unplugged the ethernet cable and activated the wireless connection and the problem was resolved.
In spite of the desired result, I'm still curious why I had the problem in the first place. FYI, I used a few ethernet cables just in case one of them was defective but the problem persisted, which pretty much eliminated the possibility of a bad cable being used. Anyway, thanks again for your help.
