I am running winxp...supposed to be easier...right? My particular config includes cable modem, router, lan and two home computers....one has the printer attached and I can't get the other to gain access to the printer....when I run network wizard..it says that this is not recommended and it won't let use the printer....each computer accesses the internet independantly thru the router...any one have any ideas on how to get around this?
Are both your computers using the same workgroup, different name?

using default "mshome" workgroup and computers are using different name....everything worked fine until I installed the router for the cable modem.....I am only using tcp/ip protocol, with client for ms windows and file and print sharing enabled....I can ping the computers and the router just fine....I know there is a conflict somewhere..I just can't put my finger on it....
