They should both be in the same workgroup/homegroup since they are connectd to the same router, so sharing should work the same from both computers.

Well since they are in two diferent Networks its not letting me connect to the other workgroup from the other network.
So what i did i ended up connecting the printer to the computer through USB
from a diferent network the printer is setup wireless i only use the usb to configure it .And it work i can acces the printer from a diferent network now .But Now the printer got disconnected on the other computer from a diferent network.
so it seems tha im going to have to connect the printer to the router wireless and then let the router share it to diferent networks/SSID and my ethernet ports when i have computer connected to it.

But my question is how can i do tha with the router tha i have ??
Thnks for your help

How can they be in two different networks if you have only one router?

You have a common Gateway and they must share the same base IP address with just the last digits being different.

My router is a N600 wireless dual band gigabit adsl2+ modem router DGND3700
I can have up to 4 wireles networks/multiple SSIDs .
I want to be able to print from each network/ssid .
I was thinking tha maybe readyshare could help but im not sure??

Guess I'm getting out of date. Had not heard of a router that had that capability. Thanks for the info.

Next question. Why have them on two different networks? I can see a security advantage, but are there other reasons?

Readyshare is talking about USB storage devices, not sure if a printer is supported.

Some Google searching did not turn up any way to do this other than to bridge the two networks which I don't think you could do within a single router.

Do the networks share a common IP base address, e.g. 192.168.0.x?

3 of them are Guest Networks and 1 is the main network.
I figure it out thnks to the Netgear forums .
It turn out tha i had to put a check mark on "Allow guest to access My Local Network" on the router wireless settings.
And tha fix my printer sharing issues with multiple guest networks.
Thnks for your help anyways i appreciated

Correct log into the router>wireless settings click on the guest Network
put a check mark on "Allow guest to access My Local Network"
