If I uninstalled the printers and reinstall them, they work. I can ping the PC with the printers. If I try net view I get a "system 5 error has occurred." No problem with the PC's running win7. Any suggestions?
    I finally got network printers to work. I reinstalled Windows 8 and the network printers are now working as they should, after a restart. Not sure what the problem was. I did a clean install both times. Will play with Windows 8 for a while since it is on a spare PC, but won't upgrade other PC's from Windows 7 until I have to. Never had so many BSOD.
