Win XP Home Printing Issues
Authored by: pianomanmarty on Jan 06, '03 01:28:54PM

I have a PowerBook G4 with Airport, and I have an airport base station. It took a lot of work, but now I have that up and running fine, sharing my internet wirelessly and over my ethernet with my Win XP Home Box...

However, in the process, I lost the ability to print to my HP Printer attacheed to my XP Home Box. I have SAMBA, and My wireless network is martysland, and my regular network workgroup is martyland...can that cause complications?

How should I go about setting this up?

Thanks!

Hi

This happened to me too, when I removed my router from the network. I am sharing a Mac printer.

The issue was that the network had new IP addresses. To fix it, I just added the printer again.

Hope this helps, Jerry

I've tried adding the printer again many times, using many different formats for the address, but to no avail. It still won't work....
