Also,
I read this article:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/u...utt_july2.mspx

Did what it said, named the printer connected to the desktop dellaio

And the laptop cannot find it.

The desktop's name is FAMILYROOM, I also tried to manually put it in there as \\FAMILYROOM\dellaio and it still didnt find it. What am I doing wrong?

You are telling me I need to set the other two on the desktop to Admin?
No. You need to have the laptop's user name on the desktop. It's best practice to only have as many Admin accounts as you need, and to only use it when doing admin tasks. This prevents malicious software or user error from affecting your computer.

Re network path not found

Verify NetBIOS is turned on:
Network Connections -> TCP/IP -> Properties -> Advanced -> WINS -> NetBIOS is on default or enable.

Verify Computer Browser Service is on:
Start -> run -> services.msc -> Computer Browser -> properties -> start and set to auto

Verify Server is on on the desktop. As above with "Server" replacing "Computer Browser"

Did you drag an admin user's folder to the Shared Documents folder or right click on a folder, choose properties, and ask for it to be shared on the network? I doubt this matters, but might.

Want screenshots?

No im not that dumb to need screenshots, lol.

I verified the Computer Browser and Server, both are on Auto.

Now, I looked under the connections I do have there (In Network Connections) and when I click on Advanced tabs for each one inside the Properties, I do not see a tab talking about NetBIOS or any checkbox of any kind.

Is there another way to verify NetBIOS is on?

Click on TCP/IP under the General tab, then properties, then advanced.

are you having a crappy connection?

if so most likely people are getting free internet off you

thats what people do, they buy wireless routers and take internet from you because your router isnt secure
