Setup Shared Printer Connection Between Two Computers

How do i set up a shared printer connection between the two computers in my home? I recently set up, using a router, a second computer on my internet connection. Now that i have full access to the internet with both computers there will be things i'll want to print out from the newer computer and it would be much more convenient if i could use the same printer for both computers rather than set up a second printer which i don't really have the room for on this desk anyway.

Hp Printer Shuts Down Connection To Usb Share Switch

I have a hp printer that is connected to mine and my collegues dell laptops via a 2 pc; 4 usb share switch, and after a document has been printed the usb connection is terminated. This is frustrating, since the port is used for our broadband modem and it means it just disconnects you from the internet at the same time. I have been on the hp site and found a document that appeared to have the answer using the toolbox function to turn off the bidirectional communication on the hp printer, but the option was grayed out and i was unable to establish whether bidirection communication was active or not. Has anyone come across this problem before?

2 Computers Connection Using Switch

So i bought a switch, since i have 2 computers in my house. I am unable to set it up. All cables are connected as they should be and they aren't broken.

I am unable to connect both computers, the laptop will not connect. Can i get any instructions, did i need to check my settings somewhere?

Connect Two Computers On One Internet Connection

I have a laptop and a desktop i'm using cox internet and i have a ethernet router. It only has one ethernet slot, but i want to connect both the laptop and desktop to this internet connection. I have tried using other routers to the same connection but that's not working. Is there anyway i can do this for free? I have wireless internet on laptop but i don't want to use other peoples connection around me. Answer:- right now you have a modem, you need a router. A router takes one connection and turns it into many connections. A modem takes the cable coming into the house and allows you to use that connection.

Connect Three Computers To One Printer

How to use a switch to connect three computers and one printer to be used by all computers? No file sharing?

Answer:- this is easy if the printer already has a network port. Just put it on the local network with the pcs, configure each pc separately to work with the printer and the printer will take care of refereeing which jobs get printed in which order. If that's a usb printer, activating print sharing is the easiest/fastest means to share the printer. One computer (which must be left on) runs the printer and the other pcs send their print jobs to the key pc. Other options include getting a small print server device (connects the printer's usb cable to the network) but that can be somewhat difficult to get working smoothly.
