Hello all,

Sorry to be asking such a silly question, however; I know enough about computers to be dangerous at best :thumbsup:

My question is.......................we have 2 computers, and I both computers to use the same printer. I have the printer hooked up to the computer in my office, and I want the other computer to "recognize" that printer. How do I go about doing that?

The computers "communicate" via wireless router.

Thanks,

Jim
