    network related issue.

    hello there.

    I have 4 computers that are all connected through a HUB.One of the computers has a printer.It shows in the my network places section but when I click on its name I get p3\ not accessible. The network path was not found.It worths that sometimes it works.

    What could the problem be?The computer is on of course but still that is what happens.

    Thanks in advance

    See if turning off the built in firewall helps. And the system you are trying to access had File & Printer settings turned on.

    Stop file and printer sharing on your print server restart you machine and then enable the printer sharing. Make sure all 4 machines are part of a single workgroup.
