    Re: Sharing a Priter

    You can share the printer. See Windows XP: Networking your home or small business is a good place to start. This "windows xp" printer sharing - Google Search provides many links on setting up a small network.

    Sharing a Printer

    I have a printer connected directly to my PC and would like to share it with my wireless portable. Is this possible or do I need to purchase a printer with WiFi capability that my portable can recognise and connect with? Thanks.

    Re: Sharing a Printer

    No, it is connected to the PC via a cable and I would like to use it via WiFi. Is it best to but a printer with WiFi capability?

    Not physically shared but shared on a network. You need to set up a network. See Share Your Printer Over a Home Network Using Windows XP which is the first link in "windows xp" printer sharing - Google Search as a start.
