    Hi

    My cable modem is connected to a WRT300n V2 where my Desktop is also connetect by a ethernet cable.
    Connetect to my Desktop via USB cable is HP PhotoSmart 2610 All-in-one.

    I also have 2 LapTops with WPC300n v2 wireless PCMCIA cards, and I need to print from those laptops to the HP2610.

    What type of LynkSys Hardware do I need to allow the LapTops to print to the HP2610?



    thanks in advance

    you dont "NEED" any new hardware if you want to share the printer. Make sure all computers are on the same workgroup (right click "my computer" goto properties and then the "computer name" tab. in there it will tell you the workgroup name, change them to whatever you want just make sure they are all the same. on the desktop share the printer (and disable any firewalls to setup) then from the laptops connect to \\computername and then doubleclick the printer that you shared, it will install and print as long as the desktop is on. If you want to be able to print without the desktop being on, you will need a print server.

    I see what you mean, but sharing the printer that is connected to the DeskTop, requires that the Desktop must be "power on".
    What I need is to print from the LapTops without to power on the Desktop...
