Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
Have a Systemax Venture desktop computer with Windows XP pre-loaded connected to a HP LaserJet 4000 printer and a Dell Inspiron 1525 PC Notebook which I use wireless in my office. I have the need to print from either or without using a wireless printer. How do I network them both to do this? I can print fine with the XP computer directly of the ATT DSL modem. I need to be able to share printer.
On the desktop machine - go to the printers folder, right click the
icon for the Laserjet and choose sharing (enable print sharing). You
should be able to name the printer and make it accessible to anyone
within the workgroup. If needed you can run the network setup wizard to change the workgroup names on both machines.
On the laptop go to add new printer and choose network printer, you should be able to browse to the desktop machine by name and choose the Laserjet as a printer (whether you want it to be the default is up to you). The laptop will download and install the drivers from the desktop pc to the laptop and set the correct network path automatically.
It goes without saying that the desktop machine must be on in order to print from the laptop in this scenario.
