Question about HP Photosmart C5280 Printer
Yes, you can. The easiest (and most secure) way to do this is to share it through a computer that is always on as the printer's host. Actually, looking at the specifications of the C5280, it is your only option. On the host computer (the one directly connected to the printer), click
(On Vista) Start > Control Panel > Printers
Right-click on the printer you wish to share, then left click on Sharing ... and click the checkmark box for "Share This Printer As" and give the printer a name. If this option is grayed out, click the shielded button Sharing Options and enable printer sharing.
On each of the computers you want to have printer access, open the printers window (see above) and double click the "Add Computer" icon. From the dialogue box, click "Add network, wireless or Bluetooth Printer." Your shared printer should appear on the list. Follow the prompts to install the printer, and you are ready to go!
Notes: The process is almost identical for WinXP and Windows 7 with small variations. Printer drivers will probably not be necessary, the remote computers may ask for one. Install the driver on each system as requested. Opening printer sharing can cause security vulnerabilities on improperly setup routers -- make sure that your wireless router is properly secured with WPA2 encryption and a security key (built-in features on most routers, but usually turned off by default).
