Yes there is NO reason why you can't. You must simply install the Printer Drivers on BOTH PC's. Using the Software supplied, first Setup/Install the printer on your Desktop PC, FIRST, as a LOCAL printer. Then 2nd, from ya lappy setup your printer as a "Networked" printer.. locate and connect.. the driver will install, & ya can then print a Test Page, to see if it is all OK. After the Drivers are installed at BOTH locations you will be able to print from your laptop through your desktop to ya printer... no worries..

Printing: since Lexmark say you can either connect wirelessly or wired and not both, you must either connect your daughter's machine to the hub by wire or yourself to the printer wirelessly.

Fax: this will need a phone line.

Cannot print from laptop to printer using wireless print server

This is probably the Software Firewall on your laptop

you should probably tell your firewall software that you have an internal network (Laptop-desktop-printer) you should add the IP range of the wireless network as a trusted network.
