Need a bit of IT advice if anyone can help:
1) a desktop PC running Windows XP, with a laser printer connected to it by USB
2) a laptop running Windows 7
Both are connected to the same router, and set to the same 'workgroup' under Network settings.
Previously, item #2 was another laptop running Win Vista. I was able to configure them such that print jobs could be sent from the laptop to be printed out via the desktop's USB connection to the laser printer.
The laptop has simply been replaced with a newer one, now running Win 7. But for some reason I cannot achieve the same 'connectivity' with this laptop.
Not sure if you have set your "desktop PC" to accept only certain machines to print.. (I have.. as I dont want tom.dick.harry to print on my printer...).. if have have set it such that only certain IP numbers are allowed to print.. then you will need to also include your "new" laptop into the list.. Not sure if that was your "problem"?
I wouldn't really have to protect the printer, since my home network is pretty small, and I don't have 'unwanted guests' on it (or at least I don't know that any unwanted guests are on it!)
Guess under Printer's Properties - Sharing .. you have shared out your printer.. Wonder if you new laptop is able to find the printer?...
.. I'm no expert.. so only limited knowledge..
Nope not network printer.
Network printer use USB connection meh?

I booked it online but seems a lot of the kakis are unavailable at that timing.
Don't wanna let the booking go to waste.
No IT expert here, but seems like it’s either a communication problem between your laptop and PC, or printer settings on your laptop. You can try these troubleshooting steps first:
1. make sure that your laptop can “see” your desktop by ping-ing it.
2. on your laptop, check your list of printers. The printer name should be something like “xxx printer on xxx PC”.
