Let me get this right,,, have you set the printers to be shared on the 2000 machine,, as a print server,, if so,, then to connect these printers you browse through NN and find the machine go to the printer and right click and choose Install,,
However, since the DSL,, the printer is now unavailable, and you can no longer access via the NN?? So you have removed fire walls, and attempted to correct the situation by removing the DSL,, printers still dont work,,,
Question: what make of printer are we dealing with?
Question: How did you set up your Shared Network?
Question: How are machines receiving an IP address?
Question: How have you provided for DNS for the 2K machine?
It sounds as though they have lost their connection due to the install of the Internet,, not a bad thing and usually a quick fix,,
just need a bit more insight,,
Offhand , I would say delete the printers and reinstall,, however that will not work until you get the NN issue resolved, which I think leans towards an IP issue, and a Subnet issue,, however, I would like to hear how you are sharing the internet..
