I would like to network my printer, I have three PCs all close together and I use ethernet cables to the back of the BT 1200 Yoyager. I have one port left for ethernet conection if needed.
I am running ME XP XPPro.
Printer, Canon Pixma ip4000.

The PCs dont share files with each other. I am not sure how to go about that they are independent as far as i know.

ok to network your printer you have 2 options you can either plug it into one of the pc's and share it or purchase a print server which would allow you to use the cable

(Sharing via a pc, that pc will need to be on for others to connect to the printer)

to set up file and printer sharing in xp run the network wizard

go to start network settings top left network tasks you will see a list select the wizard required and run it and follow the instructions you will need to have a floppy disk handy to run it on the ME machine
