How can i connect my printer to a computer which is not in the same workgroup? would i need to change the workgroup of that computer or there is another way to connect it? Please help me. thanx.
i never had this situation, just a guess..
go to add printer-> network printer->Microsoft windows network->YOUR workgroup ->system with shared printer(it will also shows to shared printers when you select the workgroup) -> shared printer..
Is this a home network? Just make the computers both be in the same workgroup, if there's no real reason for them to be in different workgroups.
If you can't do that, try doing start - run - then type in \\machinename or \\ipaddress (the actual machine name or ip address) of the machine with the printer attached, from the want you want to use it from. for example, \\192.168.1.20 - it should show a list of available resources
