    my home network used to work. I have two XP's one ME and
    one 98se all sharing a network and ISP. I have a HP PSC
    2210 directly connected to WinME. The 98se is a IBM
    laptop. I can see all devices and printer in the
    neighborhood. All devices successfully access the
    internet. I can print on all computers except the laptop
    (98se). When I try to access or install the printer from
    the laptop it tells me the printer is off line and it
    cant be used until it goes online. I am out off ideas.

    You might have to uninstall the printer from the Win98se and then
    reinstall it. Sounds like a driver or configuration file is corrupt.
