Question How is this possible?

Hey guys. I have a question. I was wondering if it is possible for me to print stuff from my computer, to the printer at my dad's computer. My computer is rigged with a Wireless antenna, going to our LinkSys WAP11 Access Point. This is then connected to our LinkSys WRT54G radio. From the radio the access point and my dad's computer are hooked up. So I was wondering how I could print from my computer, onto my dad's printer. Do I need a cable going into the back of the printer? Do i need to set up a network in our house?

Thanks for the help,
Derek

Hook the printer up to the WAP. Set up a network with your comp and your fathers. What OS do you both have?

You have to enable File and Print sharing in the Control Panel. Have you done that already?

No, I havent done that Corolla. And grip, thats a good question. I have a Wireless Internet provider, and the way its set up it needs both a radio and an access point, because the signal they use or sumthin doesnt work with any radios, only access points. So there is a jack on the back of the printer for a ethernet cable? I'll try it out.

Thanks a lot guys,
Derek
