My company has two machines running on a d-link wired router. One is a desktop running win 7 pro, the other is a wi-fi enabled laptop also running 7 pro. When we connect the laptop to the network, the homegroup kicks in and everything is as its supposed to be, except for printing.
When we try to print, we have to reboot the back office computer to get it to print from the laptop, and we have to do that on each document. I know that network discovery is enabled, and that the laptop is seen on the homegroup.
We also know that a static IP for the laptop may be a fix, however at $60 more a year for a maybe, the higher ups dont want to do that.
Does anyone have another way around this issue?
