    What, if any error do you receive when printing from the other computer?

    Is the host a true server (i.e. Server2003 SBS, etc)?

    What is the OS of the host, clients?

    Do you have static IP's or DHCP?

Since engrt009 no longer seems interested in solving his problem, I think we can say this is "Solved by Poster".

geconak - this is clearly a network problem - nothing to do with the printer. I suggest you repost this problem in a Windows Vista forum.

Does not seem to print xps files.

For sure, you're trying to print a document or text from a client PC in which the print network was not shared. If this was the case you can try these simple 1-2-3 steps:

1. In the server make sure that the printer is shared through network thru the Printer and Fax Config in the Start Menu
> Select Printer
> Properties
> Sharing
> Share this printer (Printer name ex.: Brother...)
> OK

2. In the client PC make sure that the printer is joined through the network thru the Printer and Fax Config in the Start Menu
> Add A Printer
> A Network Printer
> Connect to the Printer (ex.: \\server\Brother...) Automatic Detection...
> Next.....
> OK

3. Ready to print any files....

How to connect a wireless printer.

First things first. Make sure that you have the same username and password set up on the machines you want to use as your print server and the machine(s) you are going to print from, the or the "Client".. This is required so that you can communicate with the other machine(s), "Clients".. Once you have the machines’ usernames and passwords set, you can turn to the machine with the printer attached to it. (which we will call the print server). From this machine (The one we have called the print server), we will need to set up the default printer on it. So install the software & drivers for the printer. Test that you can do a "Test Print" . Then we will need to go to Printers and Faxes in the control panel. You need to right click on the printer that you want to share, and choose properties. When you get to the properties page for the printer, click on the tab that says "Sharing". That will enable the client PC to "See" & be able type in the printer’s name. Usually the software will put the "Printers" name in. It will be grayed out until you click the radio button to share it.
Now, when you are ready, go to the "Client" computer you want to print from, wirelessly. When you set up your printer, go to install the printer, and you install a "Networked Printer" you then you "Tell" the installer where the "Printer" "is on the network". So when asked for location you then you can "Browse" for the printer, or type and your IP address OR host name,and Printer name too.. Mine is OR heaven, so I typed, OR the Name of the machine. So say: As in my case, or heavenBrotherD. Anyway, this will then go away, and connect to the "Printer" and do some houskeeping & finish, from then on, you will be able to print. try a test print the same as you did on the "Print Server". If you wish to print from say, Word, do it, by simply choosing the correct printer from the print menu that comes up whaen you try to print. Ensure you right click on the Printer Icon on Client and choose "Default Printer" too. You can also right click on documents and images files, and select "Print".
Also ensure that the print server is set to on, in Services too, on BOTH machines.

Our HP desktop and Dell laptop are both connected to a AT&T 2 wire router/modem. The desktop is connected to an Epson non-wireless printer. How can we print wireless from the laptop? The laptop is...

You have to install the relevant drivers FIRST (Just install without printer thats fine) on the host & clients and then make sure you "Share" the printer on the Host setup. (The one where the printer is attached). Then on the clients you install a "Networked" printer and "Find" it on the network. Now ALL the PC's need to be in same"Workgroup" and have "Sharing" enabled on each machine, they all must have a name & password too..

Can't print to HP 2600n over network

The LaserJet 2600N has a built-in print server and can be connected to the local network (normal ethernet cable) directly. While printer sharing via Windows should work, I found it much more convenient to access it without the need of a hosting computer - you do not need to switch on the desktop PC for printing from the Laptop, for example, its also printing faster.

Can the Canon MP830 be set up as a network printer. If so, how do I do it?

It can be done two ways. First, you can purchase a Silex Print Server C-6700WG and connect the MP830 to your network through this server. Second, you can connect the MP830 to one computer in your network and use that computer as a server to handle print jobs from other computers (clients) on the network (called print sharing).

Information on how to do either of these can be found here. Type "network printing" in the small search window in the center of the screen and click the Search button. You will find several links related to network printing/printer sharing.

Can't print from shared printer

Did you connect the printer directly to the laptop to install the drivers? If so, you need to change the port to the network location to //hostcomputer/printer. You should also have the same user name and password set on both machines and have the user rights assigned to the printer sharing.

Dymo Twin Turbo install on network

You need to download the Dymo software 7.8 from Dymo. Start with the system that has the printer plugged into it. Install the software and make sure it works (prints labels) Now go to Printers and Faxes and find your printer. Right click and choose properties. Then the Sharing tab. Choose a share name that is simple. The printer will now be know to other installs as \\computername\sharename

Go to the next computer and install the software - CHOOSE NETWORK when you get the part about connection. Either enter your host computer info from above or BROWSE to it via Windows Networking. All should be fine now.

Cannot print on shared printer

I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.
