First, I am on a wireless set up. Two computers together. OK, problem is...Two computers and only one printer. What do I have to do to get the second one tied into the printer? Thanks in advance for your help. Bill

MOD EDIT: I'm moving your post to the appropriate forum, where it will get the attention it deserves.

Hi :thumbsup:
If you want to leave it hooked to a present computer. Enable printer sharing. Which is done by running the Network Setup Wizard. If you are networked all ready that should be done. If not run the NSW. Then go to the printer you wish to share and right click it. Then left click sharing and set the permission to share.
If you want to have the printer where both computers don't have to be on. Buy a printer server. About $20 used on ebay or $40 and up new at a store. I perfer a printer server. Less problems and if the computer is down for what ever reason the printer is still accessible. Try PriceWatch. Good luck
