Ya this is some what correct. You might be lacking on some system network setting. Just you have to do is make sharing of your network without any complecated authorised or password sharing. Thats it.

Can the HP PSC 2410 printer be shared between 2 computers?


generally the printers with single USB port are dedicated for use with one computer.

However, depending on the way you connect the computers you can share the printer with more than one computer.
1. SET THE SECOND COMPUTER UP AS A NETWORK PRINTER

This is one of the most common ways to connect two home computers to the same printer. The advantage of this technique is that it doesn't cost you anything extra. You do require some computer literacy in networking though.

Firstly you physically connect the first computer to the printer via the provided cables. The second computer now needs to be set up as a network printer to have printing capabilities. The computer not physically hooked up sends a message via the network to the computer which is physically connected to print.

To set up the network connection in Windows follow these steps:

-Open the control panel

-Select the network or network and sharing icon

-You should see an icon named file and print sharing or simply print sharing. Turn on printer sharing if it is off.

(This requires your two computers to already share a network connection; otherwise you will have to set this up).

2. PURCHASE A PRINTER SWITCH

A simple old fashioned way to connect two computers to one printer is by hooking them up to one switchbox in the middle. This switch is what is connected to the printer. This is a similar method to using a router to distribute the Internet to more then one computer.

This method is good for people who aren't very computer literate when it comes to networking. All you have to do is plug the cables in and off you go. However, it has one large disadvantage which is that the computers and printer all have to be in close proximity for the cables to reach.
The printer server should support the printer so that you can get maximum functionality from the printer device (including the multifunction feature).

3. You can buy a printer server but for that you need to make sure the device fully supports the printer you have got including the multifunction features. Both computers will need to have network connection.

Netgear FS105 Switch is not fowarding ports properly.


Does your modem have a built in router or do you have a router in your network. The switch needs no changes that's all it is a switch it will allow computers to talk and share fine, if you want to use it for internet you will need to connect it to a router first or use one of your computers as the router and let it share the connection. since you disabled DHCP on your router I am assuming you have a router. all you need is to connect the switch to the router, the connect the computers to the switch and all should work.

Wireless network between vista & xp


Open Windows Explorer, and then locate the drive or folder you want to share. Right-click the drive, and then click Sharing and Security. To open Windows Explorer, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer. To change the name of your folder on the network, type a new name for your folder in the Share name text box. This will not change the name of the folder on your computer. To allow other users to change the files in your shared folder, select the Allow other users to change my files check box.

Wireless printing


Hi, Through what method would you connect the printer to the netgear? I have looked at the information on both products and the netgear has no Print Server and the Printer has no Ethernet or wireless. If your printer has no ethernet or wireless and your router has no print server then the answer to your question is NO. HOWEVER: You can install the printer on any one of the pc's and then set it up as a SHARED PRINTER. If you would like further information on doing this please let me know and I will post it here. Thanks
