Here's the scenario:
-I have 3 PC's in the house, all WinXP, 2 desktop and 1 laptop.
-Printer is NEC 1450N (NIC, network ready).
-Belkin 802.11g router.
-One of the desktops is in the office room which houses the printer and the router and coincidentally is the least used computer.
My goal is to set up the network so that I don't have to have the office room computer on when I want to print from the other 2 computers.
I know with the equipment I have right now it's capable of being done (meaning I don't need to go out to buy a separate printer server). Someone told me that I have to input the IP address of the printer when I go to add the printer. Is that true? If so, where??
Main thing is, I don't want to have any print jobs go through another PC. I want it to go directly from any of the 3 PC's, through the router, to the printer.
If someone out there can give me detailed instructions that would be great!
Any help will be appreciated!! Thanks!
