Ok here it goes i have the xp setup as home network i enabled file and print sharing on and the win 7 connects fine with the xp and i can see the printer from the xp machine but i can't print everytime i try to print from win 7 machine it doesn't do anything and freezes up printer and i have to restart printer for xp machine to print.. *(the printer is hooked up to the win xp box with USB cable) can someone help with this i am using the printer brother 9840cdw
Yes i have windows xp drivers
directly from brother and win 7 drivers as well the weird thing is that i am able to see pc from win 7 and printer i right click connect and it does.. but i click print and it shows up in printer display but goes away quickly i get no error's at all either
Than i changed windows 7 to workplace group instead of home for win xp and they still don't want to ping
today and i hooked the printer to wireless router and had it networked it printed on the one that has usb connection and than tried the win 7 one *(remember i hooked it up to wireless so i changed all the settings)* it printed once than it didn't want to print anymore. I checked troubleshot printer and no problems came up i was also able to ping the printer from both win xp 32 and win 7 64 so i know they can talk to each other. Another thing printer says toner end life would that matter?
