Printer on a network

  Silenced 13:15 22 Nov 2008

I am trying to setup my printer on a network with my BTHomeHub so I can use my dads printer and he can too, I've done it before but his pc must be on to use it.

Is there a way I can make it so it'll print without his pc being on.

I am on the Ethernet wire internet, he is on the USB and the printer is Ethernet 2, I can connect to it without his pc being on, it just wont print anything

I can make this work when my dads pc is on, but else it will not work which is annoying to say the least...
