    my friend is asking me how to share his hp 6100 printer which is hardwired to his linksys router, which is also 802.11

    his os is 2000 pro, hardwired to the ruoter.

    his wifes laptop needs to use the printer, and this is xp home, and using the 802.11 signal.

    thanx

    START
    RUN
    type in "\\COMPUTERNAME" where computername is the computer that manages the printer.
    Select the printer from the browser that pops up by double clicking it.

    That should do the trick. That, of course, is the easiest way to do it.

    You could also set it up to do IP printing, but that's a little more detailed.
