    Network Home Network Connection Problem

    Can someone tell me how to get four PC's all Windows 7 to see each other on a Home Network. The name is Home Network. Then I need to setup the printer so everyone can print to it. I only see one computer on the network and still can't print to the HP Photo smart 2575xi printer.

    To share without using a Homegroup, you just need to follow the advice for the windows 7 end of things, maybe this will help: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo...dows-7-and-xp/

    if you want to use a Homegroup, maybe this one can help: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo...ith-homegroup/

    With my 3 Win 7 PC's I have chosen to use Homegroups. The How To Geek articles Rui has linked are excellent.

    Fred Langa has posted a Windows Secrets article to the Newsletter with his take on networking with Win 7.
