I've a new laser printer that I want to share between two pc s.....is there a selector type switch available that will allow me to select between 2 pcs...and, if so, how would I identify it by name so as to be able to recognize it when looking up a source for it?

Are the computers networked together?
If they are,you can just set it up as a networked printer
on the second computer.
If not,there are switches.How is it connected?
USB?
