    I have a new Samsung All-in-one printer without Wireless Built-in. I have wireless internet from AT&T at home... What I need to do so I can share this Samsung printer with other four laptops? Thanks in advance.

    Does your router have a print-sharing feature?

    In decreasing order of desirability, options include ...

    If the all-in-one has ethernet capability connect it to the router.

    As prunejuice indicated if the router includes a print server connect the all-in-one to that by USB.

    Get a (compatible with your all-in-one) print server to connect to the all-in-one by USB and the router by Wi-Fi or ethernet.

    Connect (and install) the all-in-one to a computer by USB, enable file and printer sharing, and share the printer.
