Default Printer on Home network

there are no computers physically hooked up to my wireless router, but 3 PC's running on its wireless network. one of these desktop PC's has a printer on it. is it possible to put that on a network of some sort (can i control it with another PC?)

yes you have network the printer, you will need to setup the network so that the computer with the printer on can share stuff, when this is done you will be able 2 share the printer so all the computers can connect to it and use it.

the best way to do it is to make all the computers go on the same workgroup so you know where everything is.

The only thing is that the pc that the printer is hooked to has to be on for you to use the printer, if thats not a problem then you're good to go. Maybe you might want to check your router to see if it has a built in printserver. Or you can buy one of those wireless print servers and add that to the network so that you don't have to have a pc on to use it.

But like I said, if that isn't a problem, then you're good to go.
