Hi..I have a desktop upstairs connected to A linksys router. We have comcast.
The p/c does not have a pci wireless card. the printer is connected to this unit.

The notebook downstairs is wireless and I am trying to set up so both computers can use the printer.
Can someone help me asap?

Open Printers and Faxes.

You should be able to right-click on that printer, on the main computer, and select Sharing.

Call it whatever you like. :huh:

Then, select "Share this printer" and also select List in Directory. :thumbsup:

Both of the computers should be members of the same workgroup or domain. :huh:

Right click My Computer, Left-click Properties, then Computer Name Tab, in order to see the workgroup name.

Now go to the other computer and try to install the printer as a "network printer" or a "printer attached to another computer".

Try that and see what that brings you. I hope my directions are not too confusing.

Good luck
