The problem is that your computer is not interconnected with the other computer  Are they connected on a switch or hub?

 

 

 Try to ping the IP address of the other PC

Click start, run , type cmd and then enter, then type ipconfig,  please determine the IP address of the other PC  doing the same procedure.

 

Then at command prompt type ping x.x.x.x the IP Address of the other PC.

 

Then make sure the printer is shared

Click  start, control panel, Click view devices and printers.

  1. If the printer is installed already in the PC right click properties
  2. Click the Sharing tab In the Properties window and make sure the printer is shared

If you can ping the IP address of the PC with shared printer then this is the time to configure your PC to be able to access and use the printer.

 

Click start, in the run window type the ip address to access \x.x.x.x there you see the share printer , right click and then install

Hello. You can try this steps on setting your computer used to access files on other pc.
 
1.Click the Start icon and click "Control Panel" from the Start Menu.
2.Select "Choose homegroup and sharing options" under the "Network and Internet" section.
3.Click "Join Now" and enter the network password in the Homegroup wizard.
4.Select "Computer" from the Start Menu and select "Homegroup" from the left column of the window.
5.Select the computer displayed that has the files you wish to access.
6.Select the shared folder that contains the files.

Very well informative. I don't really have any idea on doing troubleshooting especially when it comes to technical matters. Thanks to this site.

Adryan, that was really great. My printing is working well now.

Thumbs up! 

Thank You
