Really need a little more info, in the area of the two PCs presently networked to a printer.

How are they handling IP adresses (is one PC acting as the DHCP sever) or are they assigned fixed IP adresses?

Without some basic setup info, you could be led on a destructive journey.

Do the existing 2 PCs connect via a hub/switch?
Is there a spare 5 inputs on the hub/switch?

Is the existing printer connected to the network via a print server, or is it connected directly to one of the PCs?
