I have a laptop and two desktop PCs. My first desktop is connected to an Epson R210 printer which is connected to my Linksys wireless router via the LAN cable. My second desktop is connected to an HP PSC 1410 printer. My laptop and second desktop are both connected wirelessly but I have tried to create a network to share files and print to other printers and it does not work well. So far all my methods have not worked, even though we all share the internet through a combination of wired and wireless. I can't seem to work out how to set up our network so that the three computers can share files and print to each other. I want to print from the HP printer instead of the Epson printer, which is barely used. Any help would be appreciated. Akhil Changani Kowloon Your problem is certainly interesting and has a number of solutions - none of which is likely to be easy if you have already tried some without success. I must assume, when people do not mention an operating system, that they are referring to some form of Microsoft's many incarnations of its Windows operating systems. If you are using Windows XP, you could first try the following: Click on Start and release the mouse on My Computer. You should see a list of devices connected to your machine, including all hard disks. Right-click on the one you want to share and release the mouse on Properties. You can then follow the instructions to share the disk. There will be lots of warnings about security and you may want to read them carefully. Remember, if you are sharing things with other members of the family, you may want everybody to be aware of what is going on. If all succeeds, you should see a large hand under the hard disk icon. That means it is being shared (though exactly why, I am not sure). If the hand does not appear, you must try it again. For the printers, you can go to the Control Panel and right-click on the printer icon. Again, at the bottom, you should see Properties. The same process will allow you to share the printer. If, for some reason, you do not want to do this, you have another option: buy another wireless router. They are certainly cheap enough these days. If you get one that has a couple of USB ports, you could connect both printers as well, if you still want to. This would be a more expensive solution and you would have to set up the router again, but it would be a 'PC-independent' method. There is one last 'funky' thing you could do. Get an old desktop (or decide that one of your present desktops can be spared) and install Linux on it. You could create a file-and-print server that should work really well. Even with a slow CPU, it should work very quickly. Linux is a lot easier to work with these days, but this is the kind of job I can recommend only to a diehard hobbyist.
