I have 2 pcs, one each in adjoining rooms, both connected via cable to a netgear adsl router. Both work ok and independently of each other. Both os are xphome. The printer is connected to one pc and works ok and I would like to be able to print from the other pc. What do I do to achieve that please.

Printers and Faxes.

Right-click on the printer and click Sharing... and that will allow you to add it to the network places.

on the one with the printer connected click on printers and properties for it and share it. Then go to other pc and click on add printer - networked printer and browse for it. This should do the trick.
