Working on a network with 3 PC's
Tower 1 is XP home
Tower 2 is XP Media Center
Laptop 1 is XP home

After conferring with Linksys we got all systems online.

Tower 1 & 2 both have printers attached that need to be shared between all systems.
The XP computers work fine and can share printers.
The Media Center system doesnt see the printers on the network

The workgroup name is the same on all and all computes are named differently.

Is there a trick to getting Media Center to talk to XP home systems?
In the beginning there was the command line.

Start with the most basic connection - can you ping to and from that IP address?

Any firewalls involved?

Windows firewall only.

The all systems have Internet connectivity.
The router is brand new.

I am going to go take a look at it in a bit

Thanks!

Seems odd to me that their network issues started when they replaced their router after the old one died.
Before that everything worked fine including print sharing

Now only the Media Center edition is having the problem.
"you do not have permission to view this network resource"

I have tried several suggestions that I found on the net to no avail

Any thoughts?

What was the old router? Did they set it up with the IP or computer name when they installed the drivers on the other PC? Perhaps the IP address changed.

Not sure what the old router was. New one is a Linksys.
Had to confer with their tech support to get them on the Internet on all systems.

Only the Media Center system wont talk on the network
