Can you see the printer from the networked computer? Have you gone into the printer properties and set it to share? Right click on the printer in printers and faxes and select properties. Click on the sharing tab and clickn on the circle next to share this printer. (Windows xp)

Vista and xp network


  1. All computers should have installed and enabled file and printer sharing, which you can see and change in the properties of the network connection.
  2. All computers should have enabled file and printer sharing as an exception for the Windows firewall.
  3. Sometimes you need to install the IPX protocol on the network connection.

I have HP Office JEt Pro L7590, i want to share the fax so other users can fax, how can i do that


you want others in your network to be able to use your printer for faxes as well as printing?

go to your control panel... find the printer and faxes option... double click it. select the printer you want to share... right click it and select share (you can also select properties and then go to the sharing tab) and select to share this printer.

the option to share over a network must be installed (it probably is) but if you have any doubts... right click on your network connection and you should see something there regarding file and printer sharing.

hope that helps, & let me know if you need any more info!

I have a d link DES-1105. cant get more than one computer to work on hub/switch.


Hi!
Unfortunately, hubs or switches cannot be use to share internet access specially if it's connected to a modem. To share internet access, you will need a router. If you prefer not to use a router, you can enable ICS (Internet Connection sharing) on one PC and share internet access to the others. However, the PC that will share internet access will need two ethernet cards (or LAN cards).

Your setup will look like this:

If internet is not a concern, and you just want to connect the computers to share files and resources, you will have to se your computers to static IP. You do not need any additional device - just connect your computers to the hub, setup a static IP on all the computers.

If you need further assistance setting up static IP on the computers, please reply and I'll give you the step by step instruction for that.

For any setup, a router will be the best option.


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

X4550 vista wireless printing problem


Check the computer the printer is connected to.. go to printers and faxes.. right click on your printer icon...select sharing.....make sure the "share this printer " box is checked. You may need to install additional drivers if the other computers on the network are not running the same version of windows as the computer connected to the printer.

I have a home computer, and a laptop my lexmark printer is already installed in my home computer and know i want to also use my printer from my laptop


If that is the case you need to install printer sharing. Although you have to turn on the home computer every time you want to print. Another option is to use a print server wherein you do not need to have the home computer on. You just have to have the print server and the printer on to print from the laptop and or the home computer at any given time. If you would like to setup the printer sharing kindly message me.

Printer sharing


This is assuming you are using Windows XP.
On the PC that will print to them, go to Printers and Faxes, open the window with them, right click and choose Sharing and Security
Click on the tab that says Sharing, and click the dot in "Share this printer"
Give it a simple name (like Laser1 or Inkjet1)
Click OK, and close the window.

On the other computers that you want to print to it, open My Network Places, Entire network, MS Windows network, <your workgroups name> **it works best if all of the computers in your network are part of the same workgroup**, look for the computer that is hosting the printers, double click it.
You will see the sharde printer name below the computer, right click on the printer and choose "Connect" say yes to the question that comes up about the connection security. When the flashlight goes out, you're connected.

Remember, for it to be a print server, that PC must be on.
