    i cannot get my laptop to "see" my printer. Laptop is sharing this printer as is my desktop which the printer is hooked up to. The printer is not wireless. I have even added the printer software to the laptop and still when I click add a printer it does not see the printer.
    Any ideas?

    You didn't mention your operating system/s. Each one or combination requires different steps. Click here for instructions from the How-To Geek. Under the Table of Contents click on "Networking and Sharing".

    We also need to know how the printer is connected to the desktop computer, ie via usb or parallel cable. Is the computer that is connected to the printer turned on? In order to share a printer with other users, the computer that the printer is connected to must be turned on.
