Hi everyone,

Before I specify my hardware and all that, I wanted to know what kind of printers can be shared, or can you share all types of printer? I read that you have to set up a home network in order to do that. I ran the network set up wizard for Windows XP Home and although it said everything was "successful," I didn't find any "network" or anything new. So, I'm quite stumped right now (and a little irritated because people tell me it's so easy to do this). If there's someone that can help, by all means please post and ask any relevant questions. I'll be sure to answer back as thorough as possible. Thank you!

All printers can be shared as far as I know. First of all to set up a network you need a hub, and two or more computers with network cards. If you have this then you're ok, we just need to configure them properly. Let us know.

Hi Ross,
I don't believe I have those items.  I assume that a network card probably doesn't go along with a computer, i.e., you have to buy one independently.  How much is one btw?  As for the hub, is it different from a wireless router?

Most new computer have a network port built into the motherboard, meaning there's no need for a seperate card. What computers do you have? I think a wireless router might do the job if you have one. Most wireless routers have regular wired access ports so there's no need to buy wireless cards. If your computers don't already have network cards it might be just as easy to buy wireless cards.

Let us know.
