It doesn't work that way. You can't hook a desktop up to a laptops screen. You can hook your laptop up to a tv however for a bigger display, but that isn't what you need.

Printing: since Lexmark say you can either connect wirelessly or wired and not both, you must either connect your daughter's machine to the hub by wire or yourself to the printer wirelessly.

Fax: this will need a phone line.
