I have 2 computers- a desktop and a laptop.
The desktop is steup as the primary PC. It has Windows 7, is connected to my Netgear modem/router. It is an Intel Pentium Dul CPU with 3GB RAM. My two printers are connected. An old OKI B4100, still working and an HP Officejet 5610. Both connected to the desktop with USB. The desktop can see the laptop and I use Synctoy to back up my documents.
The laptop is older, has Windows XP and is connected to the desktop both via the modem and the router. Previously everything was working, but my desktop crashed and now I cant get the laptop connected to the printers. Out of frustration, I loaded the software also on the laptop to connect directly to my printer.
So I went through tutorials and I think everything that needs to be on, is on on the desktop.
So, it I try to install them from my laptop- I go to install a printer, choose install a network printer, then tick " connect to a printer or browse" The next screen takes forever, does not give me a printer name and stops at Microsoft Windows network.
Any help please?
