    Hi guys. I have a print server. I need to connect two computers to one printer using my print server.

    If you are already networked, I think you should just be able to share the printer on the PC it is connected to.

    Thanks for your reply. I am not on a network which mean I would have to purchase a router.

    If you want to share the Internet, the broadband router is the easiest way to do the job.

    Why don't you tell us what configuration you'd like to end up with?

    I am starting from scratch. I want to have two other computers sharing or accessing files from one main computer and have all three computers sharing the same printer and also be able to access the internet from any one of those three computers.

    OK, the way to do this is clearly a broadband router. If you already have a print server, just connect it to one of the switch ports on the router. Problem solved! :D
