I am trying to add a 4050tn printer to my home network (NOT an It professional). The printer is shared on an XP computer. I have two laptops (W7-64 home) that are connected wirelessly to the same switch the XP machine & printer are on. I followed the directions in the first reply (Add local printer / add port etc). When I "Enter a port name:" I use this name \\DEBS_INSPIRON\Debs_Printer. when I do I get an error "The network name cannot be found." I can "see" the shared printer via windows explorer. Is there something wrong with the printer or computer name?
