I've gone through and seachred plenty of answers on this subject but all they do is confuse me even more.

Does anyone have any links to do the above please

I am a complete novice!

My printer is connected via a USB port and I also have a Linksys router.

My laptop can see the my PC but it doesn't see the printer in trying to add it to my W7 laptop.

I have gone through and follwed the steps as per the attached.

and on you tube there is a very good 10 minute video by someone which I have also followed but still no luck.

Is it firewalls stopping me now

I've made my laptop see my router dont now how though!

Any further advice welcome
