    is it possible to share a printer which is connected to only one pc? i have a wireless network setup and from the wireless laptop i can see the Printers and Faxes thing on the main pc. however, i cant see my printer in there, even though its turned on. is it possible to share a printer which isnt necessarily connected directly to the WAP or router?


    thx, Apu

    Apu, yes you can share the printer.
    Go to printers etc on local PC and look at the properties for your installed printer, you need to enable sharing for this device.

    the go to network PC and select install printer from network, you should now see your printer, select it and follow directions from there.
