    Can someone help us? I had my pc & printer connected to ADSL broadband modem (via telephone line socket), and then a computer tech networked my laptap to my PC & printer using a wireless router,. which was somehow joined to the wireless modem.
    We have now moved house, and we can't afford tech person to come so far to replicate the situation. We don't have ADSL in our new region (too remote) but we have wireless (works brilliantly too!!) using a new wireless multi-computer modem.
    Hence, the PC and laptop are on wireless, ..but what of the printer in regards to the laptop??? I've asked both computers to share, the laptop says it's sharing/networking with the main, it says it's conected to printer (Canon Mp800), the network connections say all the right things. I've hooked the router in but i think I have it wrongly connected. I have the router joined to wireless modem as an extension, hoping that it will pick up the laptop signals for the printer.

    Hope someone can help

    Hi and welcome. We had your post split off from the thread you posted in. It's too difficult to assist multiple users with different problems in the same thread.
