    My Lenovo R61 Thinkpad computer runs Vista home premium. I am having intermittent problems printing through the Belkin switch. Although I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Belkin software, I cannot print at all today. Let me know if you have any solution (I have already tried hooking up the wire directly to the printer without running it through the switch, and the computer still will not print - the printer icon is "greyed out" although the Belkin switch is "green".

    Thanks,

    Linda

Printer sharing wirh USB hub


I would connect the printer to the main computer, network the 2 computers and enable printer sharing. The only draw back to this is that the main computer will have to be on in order for the other to print. Vista makes this easy to do.

CAn't print on one PC


Are you sure it is not recognizing the switch?  Just a thought, but maybe the other computer has not loaded the usb drivers for the printer.  Have you connected the printer directly to the computer to see if you can isolate the problem?
