A long time ago these computers had viruses, some which disabled the internet connection. That was before I knew about winsock fix. I was going to format 2 of the computers, so we started switching things around. Then I discovered winsock fix and everything was back to normal. Apparently I didn't put everything back where it originally was. The printer was originally hooked up to computer 2, but now it is hooked up to computer 1. So all the networked computers were looking at computer 2. I don't know how computer 2 is set up (the bell rang before I had time to check), but somehow it was working. And somehow PING and just browsing the network could get the others to see the printer. Now that I changed the settings on all the computer to look to computer 1 for the printer, they all work now.
*sighs* Sometimes it's those simple things that are killers, eh? Next time I'll look at the simple stuff first. Sorry to bother y'all.
