have an XP machine with two printers [HP 13320nw and epson rx500] connected by usb, both printers are shared.

from my Windows 7 machine (a dual boot Macbook Pro) : I can see the XP machine and both printers in the Network folder of Windows Explorer but right-click connect to them fails.

Also, /control panel / devices and printers / add printer / network printer/ shows both devices ... but if I select one and click [Next], I get a popup saying
"Windows cannot connect to the printer"
"Operation failed with error 0x0000000a"

When booted into the Mac OSX, I can print to both ... so it's not a hardware problem.

What does Windows 7 want ?


A:trouble adding network printer shared by pc running XP


I encountered the following error after I re-installed a computer from XP to Windows 7. After the installation I went to install a shared printer from another Windows XP and I Get the error “Cant' connect to printer error 0x0000000a“.

To fix this simply:

1. Open Services.msc
2. Stop “Print Spooler” service
3. Wait for about 20 seconds
4. Start the “Print Spooler” service
5. Try to right click the printer properties again
6. There you have it, Swish it’s fixed

Alright so, I currently have Triple Channel (2gb x3) of memory installed. System properties shows Installed memory: 6GB. Now, I just recently bought another 2gb stick, exact same type and brand as the other 3 sticks. I place it into the correct slot (checked mobo manual to make sure), boot up the PC, check system properties again, except this time it actually shows me having LESS RAM. Now it shows Installed memory: 4GB.... I took the stick back out, and it shows me back up to 6GB. What's the problem here? >.o Thanks -DG

A:Trouble adding RAM

That actually sounds like a bios issue to me.
Have you tried putting the new stick in place of one of the originals to make sure it works properly that way?

I have an Actiontec GT701-wg DSL modem running a wireless network. I currently have two laptops with XP sharing the Internet connection. Since the modem has an open Ethernet port in the back, I was wondering if it might be possible to plug in a networkable external hard drive and have it available to both of the laptops wirelessly.

If it is possible, what setting would be required on the laptops to enable them to see the external drive?

This sounds really noobie of me but is it possible to improve local network transfer speed by adding a 2nd network card. I was planning to connect one exclusively for lan transfers and another one hooked to a separate wireless router.

Right now only a maximum of 3 users can stream SD videos off the PC before it gets a little choppy.

The pc in question runs on windows 7 and it's board has built in gigabit, I happen to have a spare gigabit card.

A:Will adding a 2nd network card improve local network transfer speed

That won't really help the way you are describing the problem, although adding access points will help with streaming to wireless devices.

Although there is a setting in Group Policy that allows you to use two connections at the same time, I don't believe it will help in this situation.

I've done many HD movie streaming tests on my system.

I can stream from my media PC to at least 7 other machines at the same time, 4 wired, 3 wireless, plus my TV, and have no problems at all, no skipping, no freezing, even with the same movie in the same place or with 8 different movies at once, my TV is connected to my media center PC so counts as the 8th one.

This is Gb LAN, and 300Mbps wireless but even the 65Mbps limited laptop has no problem.

I'm not really sure why you are seeing these limitations but it may be the router.

Have you went in your program files and thru your files and deleted all of it from there? Then you can go into your registery and delete it from there, but be careful going in there if you don't know what you are doing you could delete the wrong thing..Good Luck

Tried to add Office 2000 to Microsoft 98 system. Kept stopping about 80% through with "illegal operation" statement after re-trying four times. Ruined Microsoft Word, which now won't work.

While it would be nice to complete the addition, I really just want to get Microsoft Word to work again.

I am willing to re-install Microsoft 98 if that is necessary, but none of the books talk about doing this procedure.

Please help.

A:Trouble adding Office 2000

Not sure I understand.

Microsoft 98 is, I take it, Windows 98?

Did you previously have any versions of Office on this PC?

Did you make sure you ended task on everything EXCEPT explorer and systray before you began the install? (Ctrl-alt-del to get to the task list)

How can I get the Disk Mngmt window to see it correctly & format it?

80gb for OS SATA1
160gb progs SATA2
300gb for music files SATA3

2 drives (retire the 80)


80 gb for OS
RAID the other 2 even though they're different sizes? (I have zero knowledge about RAID, so the mechanics of this will be searched and/or a different thread)

I want to expand my storage by adding a 1TB drive. I have connected a Samsung 1TB drive to the motherboard (MSI Platinum P965) SATA port alongside the existing Seagate drive. Not only did the machine then error on start up, but when I then removed the drive and fired it up in its original set up to check it was still working, it now still fails to boot. It gets past the MSI screen (but doesn't react to my request to launch BIOS set up menu), and locks on the screen showing the Primary boot device. Can someone help?

A:[SOLVED] Trouble adding 1TB HDD to XP machine

Remove the new drive, make sure the SATA data & power cables are fully connected at the mobo and hard drive. Power on and keep tapping the key to get you into the BIOS setup. If you get into Setup, make sure the correct SATA drive is recognized and set as your primary boot device.

If you still can't get into setup, power off, remove the power cord, then hold the power button on the front of the case for 15 seconds. Reconnect power cables and try again. If still no luck, remove the CMOS battery on the mobo for 15 mins and try again.

Download and run Everest Home (it is free):

Once you download it, click on it and let it install and then run it from the icon on your desktop.

Click on the + sign beside 'Computer', then on 'Summary', then go to the VERY Top of the screen and click on 'report'.

Note: the 'Very Top' isn't one line down, it means what it says.

Cursor over 'quick report-summary' and then click on 'plain text' and then click on 'save to file' and change the 'save in' folder to 'Desktop' and then click 'Save'.

Clear all your open windows and on the Desktop click on that 'report.txt' icon - this will open it in a text editor
(probably Notepad) and then use your mouse to highlight ALL the 'debug' entries and delete them, then use your mouse to hilight all the remaining text then copy and paste it to here.
For future reference: once you open Everest, click on file, preferences, report and uncheck the 'include debug information in the report' box. People rarely want to see that stuff.

I want to add a second hard drive to my computer.

The cable that currently goes into the first hard drive has a second attachment on it (the one that has p5 and p6 marks). I assume this is for the second hard drive but I am not able to figure out how to set it up so both drives can be plugged in.

Second problem. I think I need another black cable? I'm just not sure where I plug that one into. Is it the part in the second picture?


A:I'm having trouble adding a second hard drive

You need an available SATA port and a power connector. I don't see an open SATA port in the second picture, and there's something else in the drive bay in the first picture near the power connector. If those are the only two places for these items, then I don't see how you can add another drive.

Hello and welcome Carol now download Revo Uninstaller to get rid of the fsquirk?? never heard of it to be honest and usually one has to "pair" the device to the machine with Blu tooth.

Now from a Google there are no drivers for that dongle and it should be recognized in Devices and Printers see my pic of my mouse there mind you my laptop has an internal Blu tooth so I cannot say for sure if the dongle will be there. Also if you see my other pic go to there and see what is listed you can access that through Control Panel or there should be a small pointer lower right on the taskbar that you can click to "Customise" and just look through the listing to see if it is there.

A:Trouble adding wireless printer HP B210e


First I need some information, have you got the original CD for the printer? You will need it!

Now clear the installed ports that are not working (To remove confusion).

On the Windows printers screen, look to see if any printers are using these ports.

If so, change the printer to a different port or just delete the printer.

Once you have confirmed that the printer ports are free, delete them from a working printer or direct in the ports config screen.

Once the printer ports are removed, set up the printer to a "Known" IP address with the printer set-up touch control panel.

Insert the installation disk & start again to install the printer. Does the installation software find the printer? I would guess not?

This time tell the software the printer IP address set earlier. Then the printer & ports will install correctly. OK?

Hi ash54, and welcome to TSG.

I am not sure anyone here can help you without at least knowing what software you are using to create the DVD. It might help to also know what operating system you are running.

If your friend renamed music files that you are using to make the DVD you will need figure out the new names (and new locations if your friend put them in new or different sub-directories) and then tell the editing software the new names and locations.

Hi people, i wonder if you can help.
I have an ASUS A7V8X-X Motherboard and have been running it fine for a long while with 2 hard drives. I want to add a third so i bought a maxxor SATA drive and a SATA controller.

My situation is this. I can boot up with my primary IDE hard drive with the SATA disk with no problems.
But, if i also connect my 2nd IDE hard drive, boot up fails when windows starts with a continual beep - no breaks, just beeeeeeeeeeeep.
This isn't the usual POST beeping.

Any suggestions?

How could the second IDE hard drive conflict with the SATA drive?

A:Trouble adding SATA card and drive to system

If there is a resource conflict windows usually lets you know. I suppose one avenue to follow is that SATA devices can be set native or legacy. If I understand it correctly (and I may not!) setting it to native allows a wider range of system resources to be used. There is also another setting in BIOS that has something to do with this and I suggest you look at yoiur mobo manual.

How many devices can you have? I have Sata 1 and 2 on an Intel ICH5R controller and also Sata 3 and 4 on an onboard Promise controller. This allows me a wide choice.

Good luck.

A:Solved: MS Access having trouble adding a field to an table index in VB

This appears to be a case where you have to know the "magic incantation" to make things work.

I was under the mistaken impression that you could just get a field definition from any convenient source (like the TableDef.Fields Collection) and append it to the Index.Fields Collection.

Rather, you MUST apparently use the Index.CreateField method on the Index object
and then append the resulting field to the collection.

I am having difficulty adding myself to the Trusted developer list in Excel 2000.

I have a digital signature (unauthenticated) that I have used to sign the macro I recently developed.

The Security Level is set to High.

I am using MS IE6.0

When the Security Warning Dialogue Box comes up, the Always trust macros from this source check box is greyed out so I am unable to check it to add myself to the Trusted List.

Does anyone know how to get the Always trust macros from this source check box highlighted so it can be checked and the developer listed in the Security Warning Dialogue Box added to the Trusted list?

Thanks for any suggestions.

I'm having issues connecting to a secure wireless network. Network key is definitely correct. I'm running Windows XP...and using a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card. Things are set to acquire address automatically. When I try to connect though, I get stuck on "acquiring network address"

I've never had issues connecting to any other wireless network before, and am fairly confident this is not a hardware issue.

I'm really not I don't even know where to start wrt troubleshooting...or what other info to provide here.

Any help would be appreciated!

I set up a small network here at my house. I have my computer and a laptop both sharing files and my computer sharing the printer. Both use Win XP. now i have an older computer in another room that is running Windows ME. How do i set that one up to be on the same network? I don't know ME all that well. Do i need to create a network disc? I know it asked me if i wanted to create one when I created this network but i didn't do it. Is there a way to go back and create one now? Thanks in advance.

A:Help adding a PC to a network.....

Yes, you can go back and run the Network Setup Wizard again.

But, easier if you have the XP system disk--just stick the Windows XP system disk in your ME's CD drive. When it comes up you choose (I'm not sure of the exact words) "do other tasks." One of the other tasks will be the Network Setup Wizard.

[Just make sure you don't go down some path that formats the disk or installs Windows!]

Did you try waiting a while , then rebooting, to see if the laptop could 'see' the other computers? Sometimes it can take a while before the router finally 'wakes up' and realizes there's another computer out there.

As for the printer, did you install the drivers included in Vista on the new laptop (don't use the disc that came with the printer unless it's a newer one that is Vista compatible). Just went through this with my new computer over the weekend.

this is probably a pretty dumb question, but my mind is a blank ...

I am running several computers plus assorted printers and an NAS box (LaCie 1TB drive) on a home LAN. All computers are running WinXP SP2. When I added the NAS box and a sharepoint, I added a single user (me). When I tried to access the NAS box from different computers, everything seemed to work fine. But what I neglected to test was accessing the NAS box using an account on any of the computers that was different (acct name and password) from the account that set up the share in the first place. So, I recently tried to access the NAS box from another account and could not. I had to log into the share using the original account name and password.

So, how do I add additional users? I can not seem to find a hook into the share attributes to add users.

I need to make a new network, but I have to implement it into the other network. One is a physical bus (10base2) and the other is wired as a logical token ring. I am going to make my new network a physical star. I will not be using any wireless so this seems most logical to me.

You can do this from Control Panel > Devices and Printers > Add a printer, then following instructions in this old post. It's about sharing a printer connected to a Windows XP machine, but the principle is the same when sharing a Windows 7 PC's printer.

In your case your wife's PC is the "XP computer" told in above mentioned post, the computer where the printer is connected. Do not forget that before printing to it you need to install correct Samsung laser printer drivers to your computer, too.

A:Adding a computer to a Home network

I would like to help, but I need to know a few more things about how your network is setup. You said "XP and a Vista computer on a home network", how do you have this setup? Are you using a router/switch? Did you setup Windows Networking and/or HomeGroups between the two machines? Are both machines in the same room and wired to the network or wireless?

If you already have a network, then just add the Windows 7 to the same "Workgroup" and you should be able to at least see the other machines from there.

The tricky part is sharing and then connecting to the other machines, especially connecting to the W7 box from XP.

If you can reply with some more info, I believe you will get an answer quickly.

A:Problem with adding a second router to the network

OK, just to confirm, your using your TrendNet router AND your Belkin wireless router?

Assuming both are for DSL connections, is there any reason why you need to use two routers?

If your TrendNet router isn't wireless, then remove it completely, and use the Belkin one that is.

If you must use both, then you need to configure the Belkin router as a wireless access point and network switch only, and disable DHCP and UPNP in that router.

So the following should see you sorted:

1. connect the Belkin router to your TrendNet one via ethernet cable.
2. Do a hard reset of your Belkin router (so you have a clean base to set it up)
3. Log into the router, and then disable DHCP
4. Disable UPNP.
5. Set up wireless as usual.

This is usually enough to setup a router as an access point. Some models need slightly different procedures though. You do NOT want DHCP or UPNP enabled on the Belkin router though. You want your TrendNet router to assign IP addresses from its IP address pool to devices connected to your Belkin router by either wired, or wireless connections.

Hi everyone Not sure whether this is a Vista issue a domain issue or a printer issue but one things for sure is I'm close to tearing my hair out over this Basically each time I logon Windows keeps adding a network printer when it shouldn't be and I'm at a loss as to what's doing it Originally the printers were added using Print Management and GPOs but this PC is now identified as being in a different room yet it still continues to add the old rooms printer as well as the new rooms printer Bizzare I've tried the following all to no availRemoved the printer from Print Management Group policy Stopped the logon scripts from occurring at logon Deleted some registry stuff and driver stuff in system as per some web suggestion I stopped sharing that printer on the server I logged on to the local workstation as opposed to the domain And it still kept re adding the printer I've also re-imaged which worked until I ran the Post Image keeps printer Network adding logon at setup stuff computer renaming moving Network printer keeps adding at logon into the appropriate room OU etc and it was back but the post image setup never deals with the printer and of course if it did it wouldn't add the printer from another room It's not really a big deal in the grand Network printer keeps adding at logon scheme of things but I find it frustrating when things like this happen and I've got no idea why Any ideas Also apologies if this is in the wrong category I wasn't sure where it should go

Hi I m trying to network my home with tons of ports However since some of these ports are really hard to wire up and we re not so interested in having double or triple ports all over my question is this If I added a port in a room now which is then connected to a switch which is connected to a router which is then connected to a modem which is finally connected to the internet is it possible to later on connect yet another switch there Will there be any problems connecting to the internet or sharing files or printers etc from this switches home Adding network to new switch with other computers connected with the earlier switch configuration then would be switch-switch-router-modem No before suggesting it wireless networking is out since the port in question is going to be used for a media player and file transfer speed is top priority We re thinking that we might place another computer or two in the future These cables do not exceed m total length shouldn t be anything more than m All Adding switches to home network cables are CAT some Cat e not Cat or Cat e Right now with the switch-router-modem setup computers connected to both the switch can connect with computers connected to the router which has wireless and computers connected via wireless File printer sharing and internet is all without problem As I don t have a second switch yet and may not get one for awhile I would not be able to just connect it up and see if it works which is why I m posting for some help Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Adding switches to home network

Right now, with the switch-router-modem setupClick to expand...

I usually draw it the other way round, but you're on the right track.

You can cable switch-switch-switch until you go dizzy OR you reach the connection
limit of your router (most home routers support a MAX of 10 concurrent connections).
You can also place a switch on EVERY port of the router and then switch-switch-switch again.

The control of your network is the ROUTER; a switch is a non-configurable device
and transparent to everything.

Heck; for a roommate, I even have
modem--routerA--switch--routerB​HOWEVER, systems attached to A can not see/share with those on B which is
what we want.

I have a peer to peer network of about 5 PCs running win 98SE and a few assorted printers. They are connected by an ethernet network, and access the internet via a linksys DSL router. We were all happy campers until I added a new PC running XP home edition. At first it seemed to be OK since XP saw all the other PCs, then I took that network upgrade disc that XP makes and loaded it into all my PCs, and life really started getting complex.

Is there a good article someone can point me to that shows how to integrate an XP into a 98 PtoP network.

I have an AMD 906 MHz 384 Ram desktop thats running on XPHome SP2 and a Celeron 2.6 GHz 192 MB Ram (recently installed XPHome SP2) that are networked using a Linksys DSL router. I have a couple of questions that I need help with please:
1. The network connection is not longer visible... I've tried to ping the other machine without success.
2. I suspect that the Security settings are blocking the network. How do I reset those to allow the network connections?
3. I have been given a Linksys wireless Model WAP11 that I would like to add to the system. How do I do that and how can I ensure the security on the network when using the laptop wireless?

Thank you

I purchased the HP Photosmart 5510 wireless printer yesterday and I have been unable to add it to my wireless network.

I have gone through the wizard setup on the printer itself and was able to find and log on to the wireless network. The printer indicates I am connected, but when I attempt to complete the software installation on the computer, it stalls during the checking network environment and does not complete. I have tried going through the add a printer process, but it hangs during the searching for network printer check. I do not have a firewall running that would prevent its detection.

I was able to add the printer using a USB cable, but I need it to be wireless and not located next to the Dell.

Any thoughts?

Hello All,

I want to add a wireless router to our network. We have a T1 that comes into Router that only my ISP has access to. Next inline is a Sonicwall firewall that I have setup. Sonicwall is Nat Enables, I do not use dhcp, all of my devices are statically mapped pointing towards the firewall as my gateway server. Behind my firewall are several switches connecting around 100 devices.

Couple other things, I don't care if the wireless devices connect to my network. I just want internet access for anyone that connects wireless. (mostly for iPads, etc)

I do have a free DMZ port on my Sonicwall. Is it possible to use that?

Also, would I connect the wireless router to an ethernet port coming off the switch?

I have tried several attempts and can't seam to get internet access.

Thanks in advance!

A:Adding Wireless to a Static Network

I would use a wireless access point and not another router. Give it an IP address on your LAN, set up security and you should be good to go.

I've got multiple problems trying to get a Win7 64 bit computer hooked up to a network printer.

Network printers are installed to a SBS2003 server and shared from there.
Add printer>Local>Local Port //sbs/printer name does not work: I get "Access denied"
Adding printer through the add printer wizard/searching for networked printers does not work (it either adds the printer but does not actually print anything or it can't find drivers.

The printer list also now shows various printers with "(Redirected 1)" next to their name (not sure how I did this?) and it wont let me remove them, "access denied"

Not sure where to go from here?


A:Adding Printer to Win 7 64 from an SBS2003 Network

Print a Configuration page from the printer. If the printer has a static IP address listed then go to the work station, choose Add Printer/Local Printer/create a New Port/Standard TCP/IP/ type in the IP address from the config page. Browse for the driver. If the driver is not loaded, download it from the manufacturers site. After it installs, right click the printer, choose Print Test Page.

Okay, 1st of all I know next to nothing about Apples, but here goes. I have someone with a Linksys WRT54GC router on their network. She would like to be able to hop on with her Apple. It is running Mac OS 9.2.1 and Airport v. 1.3.1. I've not attempted to add an Apple to a network before. I did go into the area where you add networks and found the router. It saw the router, but it kept going back & forth between getting "status update" to "no status update." I'm not at that site, but if anyone has any tips on what I should be looking for/doing, I'd appreciate it. If you need to know something else about the Apple, please be specific on where to find the info as I don't know my way around them much at all. I just hunt & click. Thanks so much.

Humm::Not much to go on here
So,let's get some basics.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Make and exact model and hardware version of any other network equipment, like a repeater, a booster, hi-gain antenna, etc.
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.

Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

&#8226; Have you tried to do a system restore to before the problem occurred?
&#8226; If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
&#8226; For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
&#8226; For wireless laptops, have you made SURE the wireless switch is on?
&#8226; For wired connection issues, have you booted in Safe Mode with Networking to see if that changes the symptoms?
&#8226; Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
&#8226; If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:





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

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Give us as much info as you can>Ipconfig /all and pings are very important info for us.

A:Adding virtual network adapter

I think you can't do that in device manager anymore.
Instead, you might try this one: The DevCon command-line utility functions as an alternative to Device Manager

Simply download & unpack. Then open a command line in the i386 or ia64 folder of the tool. For your purpose running

devcon.exe install %windir%\inf\netloop.inf *msloop
should do the trick.
You should then see output similar to this:
Device node created. Install is complete when drivers are updated...
Updating drivers for *msloop from C:\WINDOWS\inf\netloop.inf.
Drivers updated successfully.

Now the adapter is ready to configure/use.

Hey guys, I have a Windows 95 machine on a workgroup called 95users and I have a computer running windows xp on a workgroup called xpusers.I just bought a laserjet color printer for my office that is connected through ethernet. It has it's own ip and network name. I can get it on the Windows XP computer, but I can't get it to connect to the windows 95 computer. I have downloaded the drivers and everything but it says that the computer is offiline and user intervention is required. Please help me out if you can. Thanks!

ekk Win95. Is there a reason why you are still running it (needed old program)? They do have the drivers for windows 95 for this printer?? I really find that hard to believe. It has been years since I have even seen Win95... the only thing that comes to mind is sharing the printer off of the XP computer and see if you can connect to it that way. Just a thought.

I try to add the printer to another workstation as a network printer and I get the dreaded

Windows cannot connect to the printer. Either printer name was typed incorrectly or the specified printer lost it's connection to the server.

I used the add printer wizard and searched entire network and found the printer and added that way. No printer name was typed.

The machines I am trying to add the printer as a network printer are both XP pro and Windows 2000.

I was using the user account to install, but even with the domain admin account it does not work.
