Me and the New roomate have a router and share cable internet through it. However when we tried to network our computers together to share my printer my computer will not allow us to network them together.

How are you connecting to the router. Is it via wireless or a cabled connection. Also are you using DHCP or have you assigned static IP addresses for the computers.
Have you set sharing for the printer?
Can the other PC ping your computer by using the IP address?

It's likely that the is a problem with your Network Interface Card (NIC). There are a couple of things to try:

1) Uninstall the NIC drivers and then install the latest available version from the manufacturer's web site

2) Uninstall the card in Device Manager, then reboot and let Windows re-detect the card and install it automatically.

After this is done, then delete your Local Area connection and use the Network connection Wizard and the Network Setup Wizard.
