Im sorry if this question has already been posted, i tried searching and couldn't find the answer in this forum.
I have a question, maybe someone can direct me to a tutorial somewhere, or to another topic that contains instructions on how to do this....

well, I just got a new router, and 2 desktops are connected to it, and i have 3 wireless laptops.
They are all connected to the internet via the router.
I have also connected my hp office jet 7310 printer to my router since it has an ethernet port.
how do i make it, so every computer on my network can print from this one printer?
the other thing is since its connected to the router directly, i dont want to have the printer connected to any computer via usb, so can someone please direct me to a tutorial in which all my computers can print from this one printer which is connected to the router via a direct Ethernet cable?

thank you so much!

you'll probably need the network drivers installed on each computer

didn't the printer come with a manual?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

You should just be able to make the printer a shared item on the network.
