I can see the desktop, but I can not access the public folder can also access the printer. Both my laptop and desktop computers running Windows 7 ultimate. My wireless router is a Linksys router model WRT120N. I had already established a network of work, and now I have to change it homegroup just try and see if I can print, but obviously I still can not find the printer. Any ideas how to solve my problems? Thanks in advance.

Do not worry, Windows 7 in Home Group will you address this worry, it will greatly simplify home network and sharing files between Windows 7 machine process. At the same time, users can also share USB printers via Home Group. That is, if a printer in the living room, then Windows 7 will be automatically installed Home Group.

Check the step by step for printer spooling.
1. If network printer, ping the printer address to ensure that the network is connected
2. Asked if someone changed the printer settings, with particular attention to whether the printer is set to do the energy saving.
3. Check whether the ink was not.
4. Double-click the printer icon, and abolish the "use printer offline", choose Print Online.
5. Download the latest network printer driver - "Disconnect the printer network -" re-starting the printer - "the server to delete the printer -" printer networking - "Add Printer (updated driver) -" Print a test page (if the printer is no point response definitely not work).
6. Check the printer network connector, parallel port device is connected (including the parallel data lines), best to go the same equipment for a try.
