print on home network with work notebook

By Casemaker ·
I have a client with a desktop and a notebook, desktop XP Home, notebook XP Pro. Notebook is work notebook desktop home. When I start notebook I have to log into domain with password. I set up printer on desktop and shared on home network,was able to print from both nb and desktop. client said he got a error and reset the Linksys BEFSR41 router now cant print. The file and print sharing is installed and tcp/ip is installed. Do I have to set this up to be on the p2p network at home so it does not log onto the domain from work?

Check into a 15 dollar application called Netswitcher I use version 2 but 3 has been released. It allows all of your settings to be set at each site where you use your laptop.

Ok, if I am following this right. You basically use the notebook for both work and home. The work connection is onto a domain?...And the home network is p2p. So, I would create a domain logon for work and another logon for the home network. That should take care of both issues. Now if you lost the printer and it is shared off the desktop, check that the sharing is enabled. From the notebook, right click on Network Neighborhood, click on map network drive. Browse the network clicking on the desktops icon, this will show the printer and click on the printer. Check the reconnect at logon and you should be good to go.
