Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
If you're using "XP" these are the steps to get you started, if it's Vista, it should be similar, but I'm not familiar enough to know exactly:
To setup network:
Open "control panel"
Select network setup wizard"
"welcome screen" opens, select "next"
Make sure other PC is on and Click "next" again
Select "this computer connects to the internet through a residential gateway....." click "next"
Type in "description" and "name' (it's up to you) click 'next"
Type a workgroup name or use default "MSHOME"...NOTE: this needs to be THE SAME on the other PC when you perform these settings there.
on the next screen, slect "turn on file and printer sharing", click "next", click "next. select "just finish the wizard..."
Restart the computer, then do this on the other PC
connect the printer to one of the PC's and install driver if it's not already, during the install you will be prompted whether to "share" or not slect "share and name it.
NOW.....to connect form the other PC.....go to "printer/faxes", "add printer", click 'next" select "a network printer...." click 'next"
select "browse for printer"
in the larger box it may just show the printer, or you may see "Microsoft windows network", if so click on it, then select your network (IE: MSHOME") and now you should see the printer. Double click it, and that should do it.
I hope this does it for you, if so, please, please rate my solution :)
