Question about Computers & Internet
Is the printer connected on one of the pc's with a peer to peer network solution
Is the printer connected on the router?
If it's connected to one of the pc's you need to make sure both your computers are in the same ip range like
192.168.1.x where x is one of the pc's. X is also unique.
can also be like 10.0.0.X
It's important that the first 3 digits are the same.
Then it's advisable to have the same workgroup with you can find in your network settings. Depends on the Operating system where it is.
Then you need to go to the properties of your printer on one of the computer and share it with a name. REMEMBER the name
Then on the other computer if the ip-range is good, workgroup is the same you can find it under network devices. Or add printer then network printer and type in the name of the printer which you remembered.
