we have a laptop, a desktop, and a printer that we want on a network so that the laptop can print from the kitchen to the office where the printer is. i have tried setting it up in the network setup, but it says we need to insert a floppy to put on the other computers and this desktop does not have a floppy disk drive to do that. what can i do?

thanks for reply :D

with that tutorial though, it says not to use it if you have a hub pr switch only. i have a modem that both pc's in the house connect too, one wireless one wired. the modem connects to a line that goes to the circuit room then to the telephone line outside. where does that leave me standing?

What is the exact make/model of the router? That tutorial is for connections to a router, which you obviously have.
