Yes you can share out one printer from 2 computers. you can either set up a home network using arouter to connect your 2 computers. Or you can use an a /b switch to share the printer.

Want to share 922all in one on xp desktop with laptop using Vista


I have a network running both an XP computer & a Vista computer. What I had to do after connecting them both to the router was make an internet connection with 1 computer, turn on the printer so everything the network was going to share was powered on; then run the network wizard on both computers. Once I did this the computer that the printer is not physically connected to installed the printer driver. Once this entire process was completed we had internet on both computers as well as both computers being able to send jobs to the same printer. Has worked great for over a year. Hope this helps you out.

Printer sharing wirh USB hub


I would connect the printer to the main computer, network the 2 computers and enable printer sharing. The only draw back to this is that the main computer will have to be on in order for the other to print. Vista makes this easy to do.

Printer sharing


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, pls try enabling the Share feature of the printer in XP. Pls go to Start, Printers & Faxes, right click on the printer you want to share, click on Sharing...follow on screen instructions. A few suggestions:
  • verify that the Vista and the XP uses the same Workgroup;
  • verify that other shared folders and files could be viewed from each other;
  • verify that each could access the internet from a single connection.
A few questions:
  • do you have a router or a hub;
  • how are the XP and Vista connected to the network, LAN cables or wireless.
  • confirm that it is a HP > PSC 1510 All-In-One InkJet Printer that is connected to the XP machine.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Sharing a printer between a Vista Home Premium and XP Media Center Computer


Hi cavman6

(01) Is the Vista computer able to access ANY shared resources at all on the XP machine?

(02) Are you running any firewall software (other than the firewall built into the operating system) on either computer?

(03) If you are, please, let us know which firewall software it is and, for now, please, disable it.

(04) Do both these computers have Internet access? (I'm assuming they do but I do need to ask.)

(05) Is the printer currently ONLINE and working properly w/ the XP machine?

IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE SO ALREADY, PLEASE, DO THE FOLLOWING:

(06) Assign *both* computers to the same network WORKGROUP.

(07) Ensure that file and print sharing are enabled on the XP machine. If you'd like, do so on the Vista system, too.
(A) How to on Windows XP
(B) How to on Windows Vista

(08) "Share" the printer on the XP machine (in printer properties).

(09) Can each computer now see itself AND the other computer on the network?

(10) Have you added your user name and password that you're using on the Vista system to the users list on the XP system?

(11) If you haven't done so already, please, do this. The user name should have a password associated w/ it. So, if you aren't using a password on your Vista system profile, assign one then add that user's credentials to the users list on the XP system.

Please, post back here w/ what you've tried and the results, your observations and any other comments or questions.

Thank you
BJ @:)

I am trying to share a printer.


Are they both under the same network? Can the pc find the laptop under network connections and vice versa? If not, then right-click my computer, go to properties, go to the tab 'Computer Name' click on the button change, and make it part of a workgroup of your choice of name. Do this for both making them part of the SAME workgroup.
Then, make your printer shared under that workgroup.
