Hi
I recently set up a home network which was set for open access but after a few weeks I decided to add security. I have added WPA security but now i can no longer print or access files over the network. :tazz:

If you have Windows Firewall on you may have to modify it to work, try this if you are. Otherwise, try modifying your Firewall.

Start > Control Panel > (left pane) Switch to Classic View > Windows Firewall > Exceptions > Look for File and Printer Sharing > Tick it (or make sure its ticked).

See if that makes a difference.
