I work for a non-profit domestic violence agency. We have two computers with one printer. The printer is hooked up to one computer (about a food away), but I need the printer hooked up to both computers so that we do not have to keep e-mailing things to each other to print them off.

Operating systems on both computers: Windows 7
The printer is: Canon Image Class MF4350d Laser Multifunctional printer

Do I need a cord? Is this printer able to connect via wireless settings? Over a network? I don't know anything about this any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

You should be able to simply connect to the printer, over the network. Open Windows Explorer, navigate to \\ComputerName and there should be a 'Printers' folder. In that, you should see the printer.

Would I need to make that printer available over the network? If so, how would I do that?

Also, how do I find out the name of the computer? I do not use these computers often, so I know little about them.
