I am having an issue with setting up my printer on my home network, and I am pretty sure that you professional experts will be able to guide me!
Basically, i have an HP Photosmart 3200 series network printer, a desktop running Windows XP PRO SP3, and a Linksys Wireless Router WRT54GC. I have the Desktop connected to one of the 4 ports on the router, and internet and all functions are running fine. I have connected the HP printer to another port of the router. Before installing the software, I disabled my Firewall, as well as Symantec Anti-Virus.
When i try to install the software, everything runs fine till I reach the option : Connect via USB, or connect via network. I select Network, and then it tries to 'find' my printer on the network, and then says cannot find any Hp printer on the network.
I am not too sure whether the problem is with my AV, or with my router blocking access to the printer and not allowing it to be seen by the printer set up software.
I know i have given a very broad view of the problem, without any specific details, but if you can kindly ask me what specifications/details you need, i will gladly furnish the same.
I hope to hear from you soon,
Thanks and regards,
