You have to enable printer sharing in the printers and faxes winsow pane. THen on the laptop go to the same pane and add a new printer, but select a network/LAN printer instead of a locally attached printer. THat should be all you need, just click through the prompts that come up and let it install any drivers it needs and you should be up and running.

You need too set up a totally new network.goto networks,click setup new network and follow the instructions. You will need the password for the livebox and more than likely need to call your network provider. If you have a desktop pc in the building its probably easier to set up a Home network
