I have a home network that includes a PC running Windows XP (PC # 1) that is connected to a printer, and a second PC (PC # 2).
Until recently, I had a Dell laptop running Windows XP on the same network. It was able to print to the printer, which was set up as a shared printer.
I replaced the Dell laptop with a Macbook Pro running Windows 7. The new laptop can't see anything on the network except the router. It can't see PC # 1 and hence it can't see the printer. It also can't see PC # 2, for what that's worth.
I want to get the Macbook's Windows applications to print on that printer. I assume there is something I need to set on Win 7 to enable it to see the rest of the network. But following the standard advice from Microsoft online hasn't allowed it to do that.
What would help?
