Printer offline in Win 7 - shared comp

mcnic, Sep 14, 4:01am
I have a Brother printer connected by USB to a Win7 64bit comp, and all (I think) network sharing protocols in order.I would like to share this printer with my second Win7 32bit comp.I have been able to get the sharing and printing working, however the printer shows as Offline after about 24hrs or a restart, and I can no longer print.In order to print, I now have to reinstall the printer on the 2nd comp.Not sure what is going on, but I don't think it is a network issue (as once reinstalled I can print again).Possibly a security/firewall/authenticati-
on issue?Seems to be a common enough problem on Google, but I can't find a fix that sticks.Any ideas?TIA
