I couldn't find a place for this topic, but i hope this fits in. I have read many websites on how to make networks, but after following all the rules, there was no luck. I have many questions i want to ask, and i'll try to go in order. My dad has a Vista computer with a printer connected to it. My computer has Windows Xp on it and it is located in another room. We both use internet through a router. My dad's computer is connected to the router directly. My computer is connected to the router through a wireless USB device The wireless device and the router are netgear and are compatable.. My question: How can I use my dad's printer through my computer, i think i need to set up a home network for that, but i'm not sure. The workgroup names are the same. Printer sharing is on. the network is made on both computers. My computer cannot detect my dad's network and my dad's computer cannot detect my network. Please, if you can, give me a step-by-step process on how to set up a home network in my circumstances, or explain what is wrong. Thanks a lot for taking your time and reading my post. THank You.
