setting up printer on network

  bazza11 19:26 02 Feb 2008

I have an HP 2575 all-in-one printer connected to my Vista desktop with a usb cable. It also has and ethernet socket. Can I connect the printer by ethernet cable to my Netgear DG834G wireless router so that I can share it with my wireless laptop? If so, how do I configure the printer and computers? Thanks.

Yes you can plug it into the router and all the computers should see it, but you mat have to go into printer properties and click share.

Try this first Go to Start\Settings\Printers then right click the printer to see if it as a share inthe list, if not you need to go to networking and click the box to share the printer. Other than that it will mean you have to setup a Network
