Windows 7: Printer Sharing

Printer Sharing

I have Brother MFC7340 printer connected to my HP home premium Windows 7 64 via a USB port. There is no ethernet connection. I want my Windows XP computer, connected to the local home network via ethernet hard connection through my wireless router to be able to print either with a hard connect or wirelessly to this printer. I am having trouble figuring out what to do and have tried various strategies to no avail. Please advise. Thanks.

Hi psyman,

A Print Server is more convenient and hassle free to setup.

If you'd like to try and share the printer off your network here's a tutorial.
