Wireless printing

  mike40 08:50 21 Sep 2009

I have a canon pixma ip4220 printer which is connected to my main computer via a usb cable. Is it possible to connect my laptop and my wife's computer to it wirelessly without too much hassle.
I have done a lot of research but seem to get more and more confused,possibly due to old age. I have a BT homehub2 and am connected to it wirelessly on both my laptop and desktop.

Many thanks

Can you advise me what hardware I will need for the printer and the laptop

Many thanks

You do not need any additional hardware, it's just a case of setting up the computers to allow sharing (as per the links above).

Thank you both for the information. I am sure I can get it set up from this.
