Can anyone please tell me how to share printer access via wireless network?
My main PC is linked to the router via an ethernet cable. This PC has a USB printer. This PC runs Vista.
The secondry PC uses a USB wireless connection to share the internet. This is running XP - this is the machine that I would like to print from.
I tried: Making the printer shareable on the main PC (seemed to be OK). Then, on the secondry PC:- Add a printer (next), Select choose network printer (next), Choose browse for printer (next) - but it won't find one??
Have looked at your link, sorry I have no experience of that particular printer, and Sharing is not mentioned in that link. However, go to Control Panel, click on Printers and Faxes, then right-click on your Printer icon, if that printer allows Sharing, the word Sharing should appear in the drop-down menu. Also have a look at *Raven*'s link, in my link above.
Sadly Technotiger, after I put the IP adresses into Zonealarm, there was no change. I think I will have to look out for a cheap £20 printer to connect directly to this second PC. Thanks all for your help anyway.
