Networked Printer stopped working - UGH!!

By rodr ·
I really need some help on this. I have a printer hooked up direct to my machine and it was being shared, allowing my co-workers to use it. It has since stopped working and I can't get to allow my co-workers to print to it again. I can still. My boss is getting ticked at me, but my network knowledge is only so broad and I ran out of solutions, Please HELP!

Open Control Panel on the host PC: In Windows XP, select Start, Control Panel, Printers and Other Hardware, View installed printers or fax printers (if you have Control Panel in Classic view rather than in Category view, click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes). In the Printers window, right-click the printer in question and select Sharing. Fill in the dialog box and click OK.

Now open Control Panel's Printers applet on the other PCs and select Add a printer (XP). Follow the instructions in the Add Printer Wizard, making the appropriate choices for your network printer.
