hi i have a new main computer which has kodak printer installed on it and is directly attached via usb cable. I ahve set up the old computer in another room and is connected to the internet via powerline adaptor. I would like to be able to print from this computer also ....any help as to how to do it...many thanks in advance....
Maybe you could connect the printer to the router by internet cable, and make it a "network printer" from which both PC's can print. Your printer manual should describe how to do it. You will need the printer software on both PC's
The key is that all the PCs that are connected to the router also belong to the same Workgroup. Once they are, it couldn't be simpler, as the instructions BRYNIT points to demonstrate. Then, go to your old PC, run the routine to add a printer, and select to add a network printer. The wizard will then search for, and hopefully find, the printer attached to your new PC. It is, however, often slightly more difficult if not all the PCs are W7 - but even if they're e.g. XP, it's still possible - just a bit more faffing about (technical term...)
jb: it doesn't matter. If the printer is attached to a PC that's on the network, all other PCs can 'see' it and use it. But as Woolwell notes: the PC to which it's attached must be powered up and active for remote access to the printer. Fruit Bat /\0/\: really? I didn't know that.
