I am trying to share a printer over a Belkin Wireless
Router. The printer work properly--HP Series 2200-- on
the home computer. I have set-up workgroup properly.
When I go to add printer, I get back Micosoft Network--I
cannot get the printer to appear. The printer is enabled
for sharing. Any ideas.

On the computer that you want to add the printer to, go to Start | Run and
put in \\computer name (the name of the computer that has the printer
installed) and press enter. A folder will open up and show the shared
printer, drag and drop that printer to your local machine's printer folder.

Well since File & printer sharing is provided by Windows this is a
Windows issue & thus it should be discussed on a Windows newsgroup for
the version of Windows you are running.

Well lets look at the name of the newsgroup. It starts with "microsoft"
so that must mean we only talk about Microsoft products. Next it says
"public" so that means any person can post here. Then it says
"broadbandnet" so since this is a Microsoft newsgroup it must be talking
about the Microsoft Broadband Networking. Last but not least it says
"hardware" So that must mean it is the Microsoft hardware for networking
that we talk about.

Thus this is not a general networking newsgroup, but one for the
Microsoft Broadband networking hardware. I'd suggest either posting in
a newsgroup for the hardware you are running, a general networking
newsgroup, or one for whatever version of Windows you are running.
