Laptop that was previously networked now is no longer. Help!

1051 Views 12 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  2xg
I have 3 computers in my wireless network:
Desktop - Vista
Laptop #1 - Win7
Laptop #2 - Win 7

My printer is plugged into the desktop. Over the summer, I moved. Once I set up all of the components of my computer network, laptop #1 could no longer find the printer. Laptop #2 can print no problem.
I am able to see laptop #1 in the network map on the desktop and vice versa. Pings work both ways. I am able to access the internet wirelessly with laptop #1. When I try to add the printer, it gives me the error 0x80070035. I have googled and googled for a fix and have tried all of them.

Any other suggestions? Thanks!

So now laptop could access the desktop and access the public folders but not vice versa correct? Well if you have the windows firewall, you should be okay. I see from the posts that you have a Mcafee firewall?

Try this, on your vista, click on start and on the search bar, type in and enter

If the laptop's computer name was Tom-PC you would type in \\Tom-PC
Try \\ipaddress(the static IP that you assigned)

If that doesn't work try power cycling the router. If it worked before, there shouldn't be any configuration needed.
