Upon encountering a problem, you should always check the error message. The error message often indicates a problem with a specific program or service. Thus error message itself functions as a potential solution to your problem. I can provide you an example of this. Occasionally, when you get’The Print Spooler service has stopped working’, you know what to do. You may restart the Print Spooler service and that is it. Though you ought to also check in to what likely caused to prevent it. In a nutshell, I would like to say that an error message itself may indicate an answer to your problem.
If you are not able to talk about your printer with another computer, there may be miscellaneous reasons behind this issue. Upon facing this issue, you may first check whether you have added the IP address of the printer for your McAfee firewall’s consent list or not. It was observed as the most frequent motive in not being able to share the printer with other computers or devices. So change your McAfee settings to include printer’s IP address into the allowed networks and begin. Now, this isn’t going to fix all of the problems associated with printer sharing but will surely fix the one that it’s related to. Bad McAfee updates can definitely cripple your printer in addition to computers.
If this is apparently the case, you must immediately report about it to McAfee’s technical assistance.
