Problem reestabling network
I just installed Ubuntu on my desktop which was the hub for my wireless home network. Both my computers can still get on the internet, but my laptop can't seem to find my desktop, or more importantly, my printer. The laptop is still running Vista (for another month or so.)
When I go to Places - Network on my desktop (with linux) it finds the laptop just fine, but no matter where I look on my laptop (vista) it's like it's all alone on the network. It still shows the old network name as well.
I am a raw linux noob so please help.
Update RE: Printer Sharing
OK, I have installed hplip and have verified that my printer (HP Deskjet 380) is installed correctly to the best of my ability. When I access "Network" on my laptop (Vista) I can now see both the desktop (Ubuntu) and the printer. When I try to double click the printer Vista tells me that the host computer does not have the drivers for the printer and offers to find them. I say ok and enter my printer info. It then opens a printer window and across the top say "Deskjet_F300 on OLSON-DESKTOP Access denied, unable to connect"
I have looked in System > Admin > Printing where the printer is located and I right clicked on it ensuring that it is shared (it is.)
SAMBA has been installed on this machine as well. I'm not sure where to go from here,
