Windows 7 Computers not seeing each other

Specs: Windows 7 Pro
Hi I have a wireless ADSL Router with 2 Windows 7 Computers Connected to it via Wireless.

They can see the internet and the Network but not each other.

I have connected a wireless HP Officejet 1050 Printer to the Wireless and it can see the wireless and connects.

No computers can see the printer or each other on the wireless network and I can not setup the computers to print to the wireless printer.

Any advice will be appreciated

You will not see any devices using Windows Network browsing unless you share them. You should how ever, be able to see them through TCP/IP. If you go to the command prompt, you should be able to ping the devices through their IP. You could also see them through UNC pathing using their IP like...


or whatever the IP is for the computer.

If the printer is wireless, then print the configuration page for the printer to find out what its IP is then add the printer using a Local Connection. Create an TCP/IP port and put in the printers IP address for that port. Install the driver if need and you should be able to print to it if it is on the same subnet.
