15 ianuarie 2010 23:02I cannot ping either of the computers (XP) or printer (HP laserjet 5M with JetDirect Card). When I run "netsh diag gui", most of the tests which use ping, report failure. Is the firewall the likely cause of this problem? I can access the internet from either machine but am no longer able to print using the ethernet connection to the printer. Any suggestions?

Open OneCare on each of the computers.
Click Change Settings
On the firewall tab, click configure firewall
If the network is shown as Public, click Change Location to change it to "Home or Work."
Click the Advanced Settings button
Click Network connections tab.
If there are multiple active connections shown, you may need to disable the extras in your Windows network connections settings. (Network and Sharing Center, manage connections, in Vista; Right click My Network Places and select Properties on the Start menu in XP)
On the Ports and Protocols tab, add a check mark next to File and Printer Sharing - for subnet and Internet if the first setting alone (after all of the above are verified) does not allow Sharing to work.
If all of the above fail, please contact support.
