Cannot Connect Vista Network Printer On Win 7


I have a vista home premium network (32 bit) with 3 laptops and a desktop that has a canon mp520 printer attached to it. This is a networked printer and works fine with all networked pcs.
I recently upgraded one of the laptops to windows 7 (32) bit and could no longer print from this laptop. When i try to add†the canon mp520 network printer†i can see it in the select printer dialogue, however when i select it i receive an error "operation failed with error 0x00000002

The other pcs still work fine when printing to the network printer.

I also tested the printer locally on the windows 7 laptop and it works fine as a local printer.
The computer name where the printer is attached locally is called 'family-pc" and the printer name is "canon7".

I tried to define the network printer on the laptop as a local printer by defining a new local port for it and entering the printer network address, "family-pccanon7" however i receive an "access is denied" error.

I have disabled the public, domain and private firewalls on teh windows 7 laptop as well and this has not allowed me to attach a network printer either. I have also created a new user on the laptop with the same results.

Network Printer Cannot Connect

Its for my homegroup network with both computers running windows 7 (pc is on 64bit and laptop is on 32bot). I can print from the pc where the printer (epson) is connected via usb but i can't print from my laptop through the network. The homegroup works fine enough, i can access files through it. I thought originally it was pharos that was upsetting the computer (installed very very poorly and finally days later managed to get every sign of it off the laptop) - but now i get the printer being found but it won't connect!

I've been though a couple of other threads but none of it seems to work. The file and printer sharing has always been connected (as my brother from his xp computer can print to my printer) and the firewall lets it through. Is there any other way? The permissions are set to print for everyone so its not that either. Does anyone know how i can get my laptop access to print?

How To Connect To Canon Ip4000 Printer On Network ?

How to connect to canon ip4000 printer on a windows xp machine from a windows 7 machine on the same home wireless network. Using add printer on the windows 7 machine i can see the printer but i get an error saying that a driver cannot be found although the correct driver is available on the machine. I have no problems connecting to the same printer from a notebook running vista or if i attach the printer directly to the new machine. I've tried loading the windows 7 driver on the xp machine but that didn't seem to work either.

Cannot Connect To Network Folder Or Printer After Update

Suddenly after february update i cannot access the network folders, our network printers with my windows 7 machine and the logon script is not running because its on a shared folder.

Unable To Connect To Print From Network Printer

After upgrading to windows 7, unable to connect to homegroup & not able to print from network printer. Windows 7 upgrade from vista loses network connectivity to windows xp, and mac osx computers and can't connect wireless network printer. Hi, i have recently upgraded my laptop from windows vista to windows 7. While working in vista i had access via a network named mshome to our other windows xp laptops and 2 macs running osx as well as our network laser printer (lexmark c530dn).

Now my laptop can't see the other laptops or macs but can still print to our network printer, and obviously access the internet. I'm guessing that i'm going to have to setup a new network in order to see our other machines. In addition, i have recently purchased a wireless multifunction inkjet printer (lexmark s400 series). The xp laptops and osx machines can print etc. While my windows 7 laptop won't.

The software is installed, latest drivers downloaded, and the printer status is ready but it won't even print a test page. If anyone could give me some advice about the best way to set up a new workgroup (or reconnect to our old one) and get my new printer working i would be really grateful. As you can imagine, i'm now more than a little frustrated with it.

Cannot Connect To Home Network

I was on the internet on my pc earlier today and as i was typing in a url into the browser, all of a sudden, my internet connection was lost. When i tried to reconnect, it said "the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network. " I didn't change any settings and i've been using the internet with my home network for at least 4 months now with no prior problems. (We bought a new router and wireless adapter, both of which are trendnet and have never given us any problems before).

I tried uninstalling my wireless internet usb adapter and then installing it again and it still won't work. I've tried manually connecting to the network as well, but that won't work either. When i tried connecting to the network, it was also telling me that the password was incorrect, but when i checked on all the other computers/laptops in the house that are connected, they all had the same password entered and are all getting the internet. I really am stumped as to why the connection suddenly stopped working and why i can't get it to work again even after all i've tried.

Unable To Connect To Local Network

For a few days now, i have been attempting to resolve this problem where i cannot connect to the internet via ethernet cable. This computer does not have wireless internet. When i run the network diagnostic tool, i get the message:"the 'local area connection' adapter seems to be experiencing driver or hardware related problems. "To attempt to fix this, i downloaded the most up to date network drivers for the adapter, i have an asus m2n-sli deluxe motherboard, aka nvida 570 sli amd.

This did not solve the problem. With further reading, i have tried several things, disabling then re-enabling the adapters, shut down the computer, unplug the ethernet cable, and plug it back in once it starts up, and disable internet securities. Interestingly, i have also noticed that i am unable to run my mcafee anti-virus scan. Has anyone experienced this issue and/or know a solution to fixing it?

Cannot Connect To Mshome Network, But Get Internet Access

Ok, i was trying to allow a network drive to be used offline on my wireless hp laptop running win7. I have had connectivity to the internet, printers, drives and other pcs for over 4 months. All of a sudden, i cannot connect to the mshome network. I still get internet access, but i can not connect to my drives, my printers or my other pcs. I shut off the firewall and disabled the virus protection. It lists the devices in the map, but it will not connect.

Is there anyway to force a connection to my local home network :mshome: via win7? At least in xp you can set up a home network connection. All win7 seems to have is the home group.

Wireless Network Automatic Connect But Does Not Stick

Windows 7 home premium (x86) user is running as administrator. Mcafee a/v corporate is installed.
In wireless properties, connection tab, the top box is checked (connect automatically when this network is in range) and the box to "connect even if this network is not broadcasting its name (ssi)" also is checked. I have checked these boxes manually and also had the network "troubleshooter" fix the problem of not automatically connecting. As soon as the top box is checked and ok is clicked, the connection to the wireless network is made. However, on the next reboot, both boxes are unchecked and the user must connect to the network manually. What is unchecking the boxes and how can i stop this from happening?

User Cannot Connect To Wireless Network But Admin Can

I'm running windows 7 home premium. When i logon as an administrator, every-thing's fine - connects to wireless network, internet, all's well. But when i logon as a regular user, it is unable to connect to the wireless network. (When i run the networking troubleshooter - again, as regular user - it complains that no ethernet cable is attached. Seems way off base for a wireless issue. ) Do you know how to fix this problem (other than making the user an administrator, which i don't want to do)?

Home Network Between Vista And Win 7

I have one laptop computer with windows 7 and one desktop computer with windows vista (both 64bit home premium). Both computers connect to internet via a dsl modem. The laptop connects to the modem using wlan and the desktop using lan cable. The internet is working fine.

Now i have been trying to create a home network. I would like to share some directories and the whole d: drive of the desktop in the network.

From the desktop(vista) computer i'm able to see the public folders of the laptop. I put some pictures in the directory and one quite small application. I'm able to view the content of the folders but the pictures are loading very very slowly. At the first time i tried to execute the programme (an installation programme of some small shareware application) i got an error message witch had something to do with dns addresses. At second time it worked but slowly.

I tried to share the d: hard drive of the desktop. From the laptop i'm able to see the icon of "d" in the network places but when i click it, get an error that i don't have the rights to open it.

Vista Pc Not Working On Win 7 Network

Firstly, i have done the following:

1. I have worked through the document on networking different versions of windows;
2. I have turned off homegroups.

Now, the scenario:
1. A windows 7 pc as a server;
2. A windows vista as a server;
3. 3 x windows 7 pcs;
4. 3 x windows 7 pcs;

Next, the problem:
1. All windows 7 pcs can see both servers and access files on both machines;
2. Windows vista machines see the windows 7 server for a limited time only.
3. After a few hours, one or more (it seems to be random) vista pcs cannot connect to the windows 7 server. I get the message "connection was not restored". The only solution i have is to reboot both windows 7 server and vista pcs. The connection will then be fine for a few hours . Then bomb out again.

I have no idea what to do !
