I have a router and through Cat5 lines i've connected 2 computers and i was wondering how i could share the printer that is connected to one of them. I tried setting up a home network, but i ran into some problems when i chose the option that said it was through a router and stuff like that. What can i do?

well, you didn't tell us what OS is on the pc's but I'll try to help anyways. On the pc that the printer is hooked up to browse to the printer through start-settings-printers. Right click on the printer and select sharing. Then set it up to be able to share to it. After that you should be able to see the printer in the network places.

Make sure that the firewalls(for both systems) are set so that they don't block one system from the other.
