Are they 5100TN or 5100DTN? If it is just the 5100 you will have to buy the part that turns it into a network printer.

If it is network ready.....

Does it have a jetdirect card?

If so you just load the software on each computer that you want to access that printer (cd came with the printer should have that software on it. you will have to create a new port. Just follow the setup screen).

If it does not have a jetdirect card or you do not want to do it that. Go to a server (a server that could handle the printer load) and install that printer on it. Then share that printer(right-click on the printer -> go to properties
-> click the share tab and choose to share.) Then go to each computer that you want accessing that printer ,go to the printers folder and click add printer and when the setup screen comes up choose network and find the printer that shared via the network.
