7, XP and Vista in a dysfunctional home network!

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

My ISP provided me with a new Huawei HG521 router today and I'm trying to get our 4 family PCs to get along nicely through it. So far, one Windows 7 (SysInfo log below) and one XP machine are getting along really sweetly, with the XP printing through the W7's printer.

 
But the 2nd W7 machine sees the 1st W7 machine, but doesn't see its printer.
 
And the sole Vista machine connects to the Internet but doesn't see either of the W7 machines, or the XP machine.
 
Anyone offer any relationship counseling for these four friends?

You need to check that when setting local area connection you turn on file and printer settings for you all computers. It is the basic problem you are facing with your machines. Such in when you are making your local are connection and setting up the home and office network then you need to select the file and printer sharing in your option and then you will also choose the same for other computers as well on the computer on which you will select the file and printer sharing is only available on the network and no other computer is seen on network.
 
So you need to make sure that you have selected the right way to install your home or office network. You can also set it again by just going to network settings and then set home of office network here choose your possible options and then you also need to select the file and printer sharing and you will be able to see it on all of your computers.
