Login to different domain

By kevin203 ·
I have a laptop that are currently join a X Domain using wireless LAN and i have another Y Domain in other working place which also connect with wireless LAN.

The problem is when i use to connect to Y Domain, i only can connect to the AP but cannot use the sharing printer and folder from the server.

Any idea of getting this done?

Let me make sure I understand what you're saying -- you're a member of domain X (which works fine) but when you connect to domain Y you cannot access the network...?

If that's what you're saying, for some reason Windows can only handle one network setup at a time. To connect to another network you have to actually go in and reconfigure your network settings for the new network. (I would think they would add a multi-network feature in the near future but who knows.)

There is also a utility you can download called NetSwitcher that will store your network configurations and reconfigure Windows for you on command.

I too am having trouble understanding the question. If you are trying to print across a WAN or the Internet then use support for Internet Printing which uses the IP address. There are many ways to accomplish this. Is the printer connected directly to the Server or on a print server? Using a print server should make it easier to setup. Give us some more details. What kind of printer, how it's connected, how it is shared, protocol, etc.

All i need to say is i don't have the permission in Y Domain to use the network resources since my laptop still joining to X Domain.

What Schmidt say just give me some idea of using third party software.
