Hi, I have a laptop that I have connected to the internet wirelessly. The computer that it is connecting through has already been on a network with a couple of other computers and is able to share its printer with them. However, I can't figure out how to connect this computer to the printer. Going through "add printer" does not come up with any printer.

I tried experimenting on my own a bit, and I tried installing a driver in my wireless network properties. The driver installed something called NetWare, and now when I restart my computer (XP SP2), the computer immediately brings me to a page asking for the account password. I press enter and am able to access this account, but I can't access any other accounts.

How can I return the computer launch settings to standard and remove this Netware thing? I'm too afraid to try experimenting by myself at this point.

Netware is by Novell

I'm moving this topic. I believe it's better suited in our Networking Forum

Thanks, I figured it out... well kinda. Uninstalling Netware was a cinch. I couldn't get the printer to be detected until after I transfered a load of files from another hard drive, and somehow the printer just came up. :thumbsup:
