Not an answer, but other than your printer sharing problem, how do you find net2plug in general. I have seen the ads and it looks interesting.

The Packard Bell forum isn't very helpful either.

Go into printers & faxes from the control panel, and right click your printer driver icon. The drop-down menu will show "sharing" about half way down, so go into that, to confirm you want to share the printer.
When you come out of that, you will see a "hand" appear on the bottom of the icon.

When you have done what Robin 0759 has suggested then go to the computer that you want to share the printer goto settings > printers > add a new printer check the network printer box and when it asks for the network pathway browse to find the printer (make sure that the pc that it is plugged into is switched on)
