Need to go to Control Panel, System and click on Computer Name tab. Click on the Change button if needed but both computers need to be members of the same workgroup. Then go in control panel to printers. Right click on your printer you wish to share and click on "Sharing". Go through the network setup wizzard. This should help you make a setup disc for your other computer so they are configured the same.

According to the Brother specifications of this printer, it only has an USB2 port to connect the printer to your computer. This printer does not have a LAN card nor a wireless card.
If you want to use this printer on your network, you need to set it up as a shared printer.

From your description, you appeared to have to have set up the printer correctly to print over your internet.
Can you see the remote computer from the main computer and the remote computer from the main computer?
Are both computers in the same workgroup or network name?

You may want to check your installation against my instruction on setting up a shared printer.

Network printer is only available to 1 computer on network


In this case you are not using your printer as a network printer you are sharing your printer in your LAN and previously it was shared with a different ip and with new modem you are getting new IP. Do one thing try to ping all the computers and check if you get reply if not check your firewall settings. Try to reboot all the computers together and check.

How do you homenetwork the canon pixma mp700


This model is not set up to be a 'network' printer, that is, as a printer that is connected through a network to multiple computers. But it can be set up for print sharing, being connected to one computer, and using that computer as a server for other computers on the network. (This will work for printing only, not scanning.)

For information on how to do this, go to this link and type "print sharing" in the search window in the center of the screen and click on the Search button. Select the appropriate option depending on Operating Systems, etc.

Help setting up my home network.


If your printer only has a usb cord than u will want to hook it up to one of your pc's and set it up as a shared network printer. If it has an ethernet port you can hook it up directly to a router or switch.

PS to set your printer as shared goto ControlPanel > Printers > Right click on your printer > Click Sharing... Set it up to have a name you'll reconize and you should be good togo.

hi there,

Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers at home, please refer to the "Get Your House In Order" article in the "See Also:" section below.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers in a small business, please refer to the "Select & Share The Right Printer For Your Small Business"

Setting up a new computer on a wireless network


hello Danj29,

I suggest you make sure that your Vista is configured to connect to a private network. To do this follow these steps:

1. Click Start, right-click Network, click Properties.
-The Network Sharing Center window displays the network type in parenthesis after the network name.

2. To the right of the network name and type click Customize.
3. In the Set Network Location dialog box, click Private, and then click Next.
4. In the Successfully set network settings dialog box, click Close

By changing your network location type to private, network discovery is automatically enabled in the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window. The following additional file and printer sharing options must be manually enabled:
  • File sharing
  • Public folder sharing
  • Printer sharing
  • Password protected sharing
When all of these sharing and discovery options are enabled, your computer can:
  • Locate other computers and devices on your home network and have other computers locate your computer
  • Share its folders
  • Share its Public folder
  • Share its printers
  • Require user names and passwords for other computers that connect to the shared folders and printers of this computer
To enable file sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to File sharing.
  2. Within the File sharing settings, click Turn on file sharing, and then click Apply.
To enable public folder sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Public folder sharing.
  2. Within the Public folder sharing settings, click one of the following:
    • If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files, but not create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open files. This is the default setting.
    • If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files and also create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open, change, and create files.
  3. Click Apply.
To enable printer sharing and share all of your connected printers, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Printer sharing.
  2. Within the Printer sharing settings, click Turn on printer sharing, and then click Apply.
[Optional] To enable password protected sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Password protected sharing.
  2. Within the Password protected sharing settings, click Turn on password protected sharing, and then click Apply.
Hope you find this helpful info and thanks for using the FixYa service
Kind regards

Help please....printer name does NOT appear


You must have a network set up, and you must enable file and printer sharing on the desktop. The laptop and the desktop should be in the same workgroup. Some firewalls will cause this problem.
Start with the network setup wizard in Settings/Network.
