    After going through all configurations outlined in both XP help and my ISP directions, I still can't share my printer from the other computers on the network.
    Printer is connected to the computer with the wired internet connection; and I have no problems sharing the DSL connection (through wireless router) from the other network computers ... just can't share the printer. Any suggestions on what I might be missing?
    Thanks.

    Welcome, slg321.

    Some of the things you are missing:

    1. What operating system(s) are on the computers.
    2. The printer brand and model.
    3. What you have done so far to enable file and printer sharing.
    4. Whether the other computer(s) can access shared files on the printer-owning computer.
    5. Any error message(s) you've encountered.

    Terry - Thanks for the response. Actually, I managed to solve this myself last night, and the printer is now shared across the network.
    I will mark the post as solved on the forum.
    Again, thank you for taking the time to respond, and your willingness to help out.
