    How To Make My LAN Printer appear across the LAN?


    Well it is not a stand alone LAN printer - it is in fact a HP 3015 USB attached to a computer on the LAN.

    But it has always been shared across the lan and usable from anywhere.

    MS kindly updated the printer machine and now it cannot be seen across the lan.

    I try to get it from another machine across the lan and that machine tells me it cannot get it because 'it has been deleted'.

    But I can go to that machine where the printer is and print from it no problem.

    So it is working fine. and it used to work fine. and the record of it still exists on the 'other computers'.

    But they think it is deleted and I can't print from it.

    Is there any way I can fix that?

    :)

    Good LAN party games?

    Most of my suggestions have already been listed.

    However, I found Swat4 to actually be a pretty fun LAN game, especially at smaller LAN parties.

    How To Make My LAN Printer appear across the LAN?

    printer on wireless lan

    that's no good. got no disk. never installed it with one from the beginning. on various computers, various incarnations of win10.

    point is prior to this sneaky update of 2004 the printer was accessible and working fine.

    the printer is not a 'network' printer inasmuch as connected directly to the router - it is connected to a machine on the lan. It is local to that machine.

    But since that guy helped out I now see that machine in explorer - and I see the printer hanging off it.

    Prior to this wonderful update I installed the printer locally here simply by picking it from the list - it appeared on the list.

    And then printed to it, no trouble.

    Now it doesn't appear.

    Though it does appear in network on explorer when I expand that machine it is connected to. with a printer icon. i.e. windows knows it's there, knows it's a printer but doesn't know it's there an doesn't know there's a printer available.

    that's the state of play.
