    Sorry, but i wasn't sure where to post this. It's a problem with a Windows XP network. Three computers are networked together all running XP Pro and all connected to a linksys router. I'm trying to share a printer among the three and have the printer connected directly to one of them. The problem is, I can't connect to that computer with the other two. I can see them in workgroups in network places, but one computer asks for a user name and password (which i didn't set) and the other simply won't let me, even though i can see it. can anyone help? thanks in advance.

    Try and enable the GUEST account on the computer with the printer.
