On the desktop, open Printers and Faxes. Right click the printer and click Share. Give it a name, etc. Just basically follow the instructions. On the Vista machine, add printer, network printer. You may have to click Add a printer not listed, then point to the printer with \\<xp computer name>\<printer name>

If you need help, I'd be more than happy to remotely administer this for you.

Got my self a laptop my epson printer is up stairs on my desk top computer.how do i get my printer so i can print from down stairs using laptop roater ect


You'll have to share the printer from the PC it's already connected to. You'll have to install the printer drivers on all PC's that you want to use the printer with.

Wireless connection!


Yes. Keep it plugged in to your desktop.
Do you have your home network configured? That has to be done first, between your desktop and laptop, etc., then under the printer's properties select "sharing", and share the printer from your Desktop.
Then to access the printer on your laptop, go to "add printers" Select "network printer", then select "browse", then browse your network for the "shared printer", and select it.
You will only be able to print through it if your PC is turned on.

C4180 ON A NETWORK. BOUGHT A NEW LAPTOP AND WANT TO PRINT


Install the software on the laptop first and when it asks to connect the device, continue without connecting. Once finished, ensure the printer on the desktop is being shared in the printers folder. Then on the laptop add a device and search the network. If your 2 computers have the network established it should see it.

The main problem here is that the printer is not a wireless printer.

Laptop to printer


1- put the printer in a SHARE folder
2- put her laptop in the share folder
3-( I'm assuming she is in your residence,!!!??? she can not do it if she is in a different location )

there may be a solution if she is away from home there is a device they sell you connect it to your cable and desktop; can also be used for hooking up your DVD, VCR, camera (checking your house from a camera ;security) and playing it while in another place. Ask at a computer store.

New vista windows working with a wireless routerand a new laptop


Well if you want the prints to go through the router and into the printer First, set the printer up for sharing by going to printers and faxes right clicking on the printer choose Sharing Choose share this printer and give it a name, then might have to get a wireless usb for the desktop at a local Wal-mart and the laptop should have wireless, when you get that stuff connect to the wireless network, go to start, printers and faxes, in the left side toward the top you will see a link saying add printer, let the wizard start hit next, choose the bubble beside A network printer, then hit next choose browse for printer hit next it will say searching for printer wait till a list of printers come up and choose the one you want the computers to use.
