    RE: Sharing a printer

    I have WifI access on my portable to broadband which comes in via my desktop computer. This computer is also connected to a printer. Is there anyway I can access the printer from my portable?

    Thanks

    In theory, yes!
    You will need to set up sharing between the two computers - do you have any network/workgroup arrangement set up yet? Can you 'see' the pc from the laptop?

    I don't have a network/workgroup sharing arrangement. Also, I can't see the PC from the laptop. Is there a simple guide anywhere on how I can achieve this? Thanks.
