Can anyone out there help me as this has been driving me crazy for days,
I have a netgear wireless router linked to a PC via USB which has an Epson RX620 printer attached to it. Also attached to the wireless router is a Toshiba laptop connnected via ethernet.
The problem is my work (Dell) laptop which I access via a secure wireless connection (WEP).Everythiing was working fine until a few days ago until suddenly I can't print from the Dell laptop over the network.
The host PC attached via USB prints fine as does the Toshiba laptop attached via ethernet.
I have tried to delete and add the printer and until a few days ago I could not even browse for the printer, I ran the network setup (which I am not sure whether I was meant to do) and then i could suddenly see the printer through MSHOME workgroup. I can therefore find and add the printer from the Dell and can see other files on the PC. The problem is that when I try and print something it does not spool.
To date I have tried the following
1) all Windows firewalls set up to accept file and print sharing
2) printer set up to share
3) I seem to be able to ping in all directions (except from the dell to the Toshiba which times out?)
4) Run network setup wizard on all 3 computers (which maybe I shouldn't have)
I hope that there is someone out there who can help and that I have provided enough information.
