This did not use to happen. It just started out of the clear blue and I have no idea how to fix it. If I use the regular printer cable I have no problem. I am using a Lenovo laptop connected to an HP Printer. I truly need help. I do a lot of printing.

Other wise you’ll need to enter the password for each machine in, which isn’t that big of a deal. Turning it off while you’re setting it up makes things a bit easier though by saving a step. Set Vista Share Settings On the Vista machine we need to double check and make sure it’s sharing settings are ready to go. Right-click on Network and choose Properties.
