    I have networked two computer with printers attached to each.
    PC1 is “guy”, with a brother printer attached
    PC2 is “Susan” with a HP 1100 attached

    In the past I had no difficulty with networking the computers and have access from each computer to each of the printers.

    I up graded the computer Susan and I am now having a few problems that I never had before.

    After I perform the Network Setup Wizard on each of the computers (in many different methods) I am having the following problems.

    First, every now and then I am getting the following message after double clicking on Entire Network then Microsoft Windows Network:

    Entire Network
    Not enough storage is available to process this command.

    If I wait a few moments I will get the MSHOME and am allowed to click on that.
    After this I do see both guy and Susan. If I double click on guy I see items pop up.
    If I click on Susan I get the following message:

    \\Susan is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

    The network path is not found.

    Of course I can not add the printer from Susan either. Though I have had no problem adding the printer from guy to Susan. And it prints properly.

    What am I doing wrong…

    Thank you in advance for your time and consideration….

    Guy

    I upgraded the computer box itself, added software, files, etc. to the new computer (another computer by Dell that was faster). It is still using XP Home. Both computers present are using the same. I checked one of the links you offered and noticed that I might not have check if the network card is set for sharing. I did check most others areas. When I get home I will check this and try again....

    Thanks for the help reply...

    I will let you know the outcome when I try it later....

    Well, I checked the sharing selections and they are all checked. I am still having problems...

    One thing I did not mention is that the computer "Susan" used to be "Amanda" on the MSHOME network in the past (about a year and a half ago) through a wireless card. Now I have a NetGear card (1GB) wired into the wireless router. I changed the name of the computer to "Susan". I did at that time have another computer named "SUSAN" which is where I took the NetGeat card from and personal files from. Do I have to remove the MSHOME and reinstall to eliminate any lingering effects and if so how would I do that. I have been looking for selections to accomplish this to no avail....

    Thanks again for the help...

    Both computers are XP SP3? If so, pretend you've never done file sharing before and set it up on each as follows ...

    Run the Network Setup wizard (found in Control Panel of XP). Tell it each of your computers connects to the internet via "residential gateway" and that you want to enable file and printer sharing. Create a disk at the end only if you have a Windows PC other than XP or 2k Pro or Vista or 7.

    Windows XP firewall (if SP2 or SP3) will be properly configured by the wizard. You must uninstall or properly configure any 3rd party firewalls on each machine. Unique computer names and same workgroup, of course.

    The Shared Documents folder is automatically shared. Any other folders (or drives) or printers you want to share, just right click on them and sharing ... . When sharing a printer, accept the offer to load other drivers if your other PCs have different Operating System(s).

    When you first go into My Network Places there will be nothing there. The first time you click on 'View Workgroup computers' will probably result in great disappointment. It takes awhile (up to 15 minutes) before all the computers in the workgroup get up-to-date and accurate lists of the other computers. Often you can speed up this process via Search for other computers.

    When computers show up in My Network Places, double click on one to see its shares. If that includes a printer, you can right click on the printer to connect to it.

    I have performed all that you have stated here. I do see the compute “Susan” in MSHOME. It just that when I double click on “Susan” I get the following message:

    ((\\Susan is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

    The network path is not found.))

    And of course I cannot see the printers attached to that computer when I try to add a printer. I do not see anything anywhere from the computer “Susan”. I only get the message that I showed above.

    Please understand, from the computer “Susan” all is working properly. It is only from the computer “guy” that there is a problem. There seems to be something on the computer “Susan” that is preventing it to be seen from the computer “guy”. I even share the c drive on “Susan”. On the computer “Susan” the shared file, printers, and the c drive show. They just cannot be seen by the computer “guy”

    Both systems are XP Home with SP3….

    Is there a way to delete all that is present and start again fresh…

    I have looked in all and most probable everywhere I could think of, to make sure the shared concept has been selected.

    Please show for both PCs ...

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following commands:

    nbtstat -n

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

    Since ipv6 sometimes causes various and random problems uninstall it from guy (the computer, not you).

    I did not see any other clues in the output.

    Will nedd to reinstall it. I went to the link you provided and it seemed that it is important that the item is in my computer. Also links I went to linked the one you sent me. Do I uninstall for only a short, ad reinstall after I test if that is the problem or do I leave the item out for good...

    Thanks....

    I recommend doing the same as I do--keep it uninstalled until such time that you want to begin experimenting with it or have an ISP and router that support it and have to use it.

    Hey...

    I found the culprit...

    I did not notice that the "don&#8217;t allow exceptions" was checked off in the windows firewall...

    Thanks for all the help...

    Go it working...

    I was setting up another computer with the network and irt was having the same results, looked into Susan's further and wahla...there it was...I just missed that check off...never had it marked before...
