If they have NIC ports, get a crossover cable or a switch and a router. If they both have internet access, try dropbox (http://www.dropbox.com). You can also get a USB data transfer cable that will work. Another option is to use wi-fi or bluetooth for the connection.

SOURCE: Internet connection sharing

To share an internet connection, you need to have two network connections, one for the internet connection, and another for your network.

If your DSL has a USB connection, plug it into one of your computers and then then go through the network setup wizard, from there it will walk you through sharing an internet connection.  

If all the computers have wireless, you can set up an adhoc network, and share the connection that way.

Honestly, the easiest method would be to go out and buy a router.

Make my Lexmark x5340 be wireless'


Is this a wireless printer? Is it being used for a large office or a small home type office? If you are using it for a home office and have multiple pcs, then you can setup a homegroup. A homegroup is like building your own personal small network. You will be able to share and print documents between your computers. Once you setup the homegroup, on one computer, then you will have to add the other computers to the group using the access code that the first computer will provide. Be sure to enable printer and file sharing when setting-up the homegroup. Once setup, you will be able to print your documents from any connected printer on your network. It's not wireless but it might help to solve a print sharing problem. Good luck. How To Set Up Homegroup Sharing Plus Printer Sharing

Hello.

Try connecting one of the PCs to the switch to see if it prints. If still no printing, then the share switch is probably faulty.

Hope this helps.

You can't share your connection on the PS2 to other devices. Connecting the PS2 into your hub should share the connection to all three devices as normal.

Connecting internet to ps3 using sprint air card


Do an ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) between your PCs. With Windows, its under the Network Connections Icon on the Control Panel. It'll show your different ports, to different devices (ie. cables to other PCs, or internet) Give them IPs by right clicking their icon, select properties, then find TCP/IP and select properties again and making your own IP numbers. Then find your internet connection one, right click, select properties, then a VZaccess screen will appear, select advanced and the properties screen like the others will appear. Then click advanced and select the ICS option and which connections you want to share.

If you are a Word 2003 user, but some of your colleagues are still using Word 2002 or even Word 97, you can share your documents with them as long as you save them in the standard Word document format. By having Word 2003 save your documents in this format, you can disable features not supported by the earlier versions and allow users to open your documents on their PCs.
If you don't want to do this every time you save a document, you can have Word automatically save your new documents in the correct format. Follow these steps:
  1. Go to Tools | Options.
  2. Click the Save tab.
  3. Under Default Format, click the drop-down arrow in the Save Word Files As box and select Word 97-2003 Document(*.doc).
  4. Click OK.
When you save your Word 2003 document, you will get a dialog box warning that some of the features that you used may not be available in the earlier versions. Click Yes to save it in the standard format that you'll share with the other users.

YES> If you will install a router into your network, it will share the internet conenction among the two computers. Both wireless and wired. So the connection will be from

Modem ----> Router (wireless/wired capable)   ------> PCs (two Pcs both the desktop and the laptop

 

and you can also add up another PC if you want to.
