Hi There !!

Thank you for choosing Fixya.com

To share the printer, I opened the Printers and Faxes folder on the computer that was connected to my printer.
To open the Printers and Faxes folder
• Click Start and then click Control Panel.
• Click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
• In the Printers and Faxes folder, I clicked the printer's icon and, in the tasks pane, I clicked Share This Printer.
• I opened the printer's Properties dialog box, and clicked on the Sharing tab.
• I clicked Share Name, and then clicked OK.
That's it—the printer was immediately available for other computers to use.
Now that I had a network printer, I was ready to connect to it and print from other computers on the network.
To connect to the printer
• I opened Control Panel, and clicked Printers and Other Hardware.
• I clicked Add a Printer.
• Instead of adding a local printer, though, I clicked Printer Connection and then browsed the network for the printer.
The whole process took less than a minute before I was printing to the network printer as though it was connected to the computer.


Hope this would help !

Regard's

Printer is offline to one computer but not other.


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,

HP Laserjet P1008 not Printing


What you need to do is go to the printersmenu in the control panel and then see which printer is set as the default printer.If the selection is correct,see if any documents are pending in the print queue or not.If it still does not solve your concern then your printer has taken up an IP address that is no more recognized by your computer.So you need to change the port to which the computer is printing.If you want further support you can avail free technical support on http://tinyurl.com/m7ghqz.

How to install the lexmark E120 network printer


to clarify this, you need to install the printer in a computer that is connected to a Local Area Network lets call it computer 1. Once the printer is connected to the computer 1, share the printer by going to the start/settings/ printers. Right click on the lexmark e120 printer and click share. Click share this printer. Once done the printer that is connect to computer 1 is now on the network. on the other computer lets call it computer 2, to to start/settings/printer and click add printer/ select network printer and then browse the printer in the network and select it so that it will be added. Now you computer 2 has a network printer installed. try printing, make sure not to turn off the computer 1 when printing, or else it wont print.

I need to know what connections i need to connect two computers to one hp printer


A 5 port switch (Hub) and network cables are about the simplest.
If the printer doesn't have a network port, you can add a small print server.
The print server is a little device the connect to the parallel port on the printer.
You then connect it to one of the ports on the switch (Hub)

Another way to share a printer is to connect the printer to one of the computers, and then share it. This is considering that you have the 2 computers networked together.
The drawback with this setup vs the first one, is that the computer that has the printer attached, must be on for the other computer to be able to print to it. The first setup, you only need to have the printer on, for either computer to be able to print to it.

ML4600 only print 2 pages


It could be losing connection to the printer when there is too much information to print.  
If the cable the information needs to travel through is too long or the distance to the printer is too far - information is "lost" due to the stability of the connection.  The longer the information needs to travel the more unreliable and unstable it becomes.
Have you tried from a different computer to print the document?
