Ok what you need to do is network the 2 PC's together using a crossover cat5 cable ( can be purchased at Radio Shack). If you don't know how I can explain how to do that also.

Once that is setup one of the PC's with printer driver needs to be shared so the second PC can access. As long as PC 1 is on both PC 1 and 2 can print without issue.

I can be more specific if necessary

Hope this helps,

My canon i9900 is offline


It usually means that the printer is off, not connected to your computer or your computer does not recognize it. If your computer doesn't recognize your printer, go to control panel and click on add new hardware, then follow the directions . After trying all the above try using your printer once again.

Good luck!

The users who are experiencing offline errors while using the Canon printers are suggested to check the connections, settings and printer hardware before proceeding any further. The connection to and from the printer shall be verified thoroughly by the users and any anomalies if found shall be fixed then and there.

My canon ir2018 is detected on my computer as a printer but the documents failed to print


Does the copier reports that you need to change paper size? If yes under printer properties set eg A4 as custom.
Check under printer progress window is it set to use printer offline.
Under cmd type ipconfig and compare subnet and gateway with your copier.

If nothing of this send more specific what didi you try to do.

My canon i9900 printer wont install on my Windows 7 computer. What to do?


Instead of trying to use the CD-ROM that came with the printer, access the manufacturer's web-site: http://www.canon.com and click "Support".

Find the latest device-drivers for your "i9900" printer that are compatible with Windows 7. Download them, and install them.
