Add Network Printer If you have two or more computers in your house or office you will only need one printer installed on one computer for both to have printing privileges. This article shows you how to add a network printer to Windows Vista.
Add Network Printer Applies to Windows XP. Even though the instructions are similar to installing a network printer on Windows Vista, there are a few extra tips that might be interesting.
Enable Printer and File sharing How to enable in Windows XP And Vista. If you want to share a printer on your network you must enable printer sharing. It is not hard to do but it will not work if it is not enabled.
Path to your network printer How to find the path \\server\printer. If Windows does not find your network printer automatically then you will need to know the path to your network printer.
Set Network printer permissions Set who can change printer settings in Windows XP and Vista. I personally like to let everyone on the network just print and not be able to change too many settings to do with the printer.

Want to share 922all in one on xp desktop with laptop using Vista


I have a network running both an XP computer & a Vista computer. What I had to do after connecting them both to the router was make an internet connection with 1 computer, turn on the printer so everything the network was going to share was powered on; then run the network wizard on both computers. Once I did this the computer that the printer is not physically connected to installed the printer driver. Once this entire process was completed we had internet on both computers as well as both computers being able to send jobs to the same printer. Has worked great for over a year. Hope this helps you out.

Network Vista Wireless Laptop to XP Desktop & Print Documents


On the desktop machine - go to the printers folder, right click the icon for the Laserjet and choose sharing (enable print sharing). You should be able to name the printer and make it accessible to anyone within the workgroup. If needed you can run the network setup wizard to change the workgroup names on both machines.

On the laptop go to add new printer and choose network printer, you should be able to browse to the desktop machine by name and choose the Laserjet as a printer (whether you want it to be the default is up to you). The laptop will download and install the drivers from the desktop pc to the laptop and set the correct network path automatically.

It goes without saying that the desktop machine must be on in order to print from the laptop in this scenario.

Vista & Xp on same printer


You need to download the drivers from HP website for VISTA.
If you wish to work printer in networking then you can also add printer in the Laptop by that method.
Let me know more how you need to go for ( since if your XP is a desktop, then I would recommend you to keep the printer connect with it directly and just use a LAN cable for your Laptop.)

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
