Question ID: 765259
I have 1 main computer and 2 accessory computers set up to make a
wireless network in my house.  All run windows XP, and I use a cable
modem and a Linksys router.  For some reason, on one of the computers
I am able to access the internet but I cannot find the printers which
are attached to the main computer.  I have tried the basic stuff but
seem to be getting stuck.  I am willing to pay the finders fee to
anyone who will spend up to 30 minutes MAX (I anticipate it will be a
5 minute thing) getting me through this while talking to me on my cell
phone.  EMail me if interested.
There is no answer at this time.

you can try to install NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible Transport
Protocol on that computer .then check the configs of your firewall.

Thanks for the suggestion fsmth-ga.  Could you just go a bit slower? 
Is NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible Transport Protocol a program? 
Where do I find it?  Thanks for the help.
