install printer

By byteside ·
I am trying to install a printer on several computer in a workgroup. The printer is shared and Internet access is shared. When looking for printer in add new printer wizard I can see the name of the workgroup but do not see a printer in the workgroup. If I log as administrator I can. I have give user admin rights and still can not see printer in workgroup to install. Printer installs fine and works logged in as administrator. Does anyone have some Ideas. These computer were recently removed from a domain network and established a workgroup.

I believe you will need the same workgroup on each computer (case sensitive) and you will also need the same username on each for example:
sarah on computer A with password help and Sarah on computer b with same password.
and you said the printer was alredy shared.
give it a try.
