      Create a network !

      Only need network cards, cable and hub.
      Use the same network name for every Pc, a different name for each PC, add tcp/ip as unique protocol,start numbering from to

      Share printer on PC who’s owning it, and add printer/nework printer/scan network to find it.

      That’s all !

      going off the other guys—I am not sure but I believe you need to have a network card or connection on your printer also. I would verify that but i think you do!

      Depending on the operating systems involved and budget considerations, there are several ways to do it. Windows file and printer sharing is by far the easiest, network the computers together, install the printer on one of them, turn on printer sharing, install the shared printer as the default on the others . . .

      If everybody is on ethernet put the printer on a printserver.

      Linksys, netgear, axix, hp, lots of solutions avaible.

      Good Luck Lee
