    I have a computer that is connected to the network and network printer. Everything has been working fine until now. I haven't changed anything, but it will not print off the printer. It is running Win 95. Other computers on the network are printing fine. The computer can use email and access the internet, but it says the printer is unavailable when I try to print from it. It shows under the status tab to be online. I would appreciate any help.

    you may have to reinstall drivers at the "host" (the computer the printer is actually attached to)
    especially if the host uses a newer operating system

    it may need Windows 95 drivers installed for this to be shared by such

    I'd remove it from the troubled machine, reboot all and try to put it back
