Having problems with your Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop ?

Printer sharing I am trying to set up printer sharing using one PC in a small network as a print server. I have 2 printers connected to the usb ports on this pc but cannot print to these 2 printers from the otherPC's in the ethernet/IP network. I think I need to indicate the "path" but I'm not getting it right. Can you help? thanks brian

\015\012Click on the tab that says Sharing, and click the dot in "Share this printer"
\015\012Give it a simple name (like Laser1 or Inkjet1)
\015\012Click OK, and close the window.
\015\012
\015\012On the other computers that you want to print to it, open My Network Places, Entire network, MS Windows network, <your workgroups name> **it works best if all of the computers in your network are part of the same workgroup**, look for the computer that is hosting the printers, double click it.
\015\012You will see the sharde printer name below the computer, right click on the printer and choose "Connect" say yes to the question that comes up about the connection security. When the flashlight goes out, you're connected.
\015\012
\015\012Remember, for it to be a print server, that PC must be on.

I have a desktop computer that is hooked up to a printer. Recently I purchased a laptop and router. I was trying to print from the laptop to the printer, but get the message that the printer is offline. Does the desktop computer have to be on in order for the laptop to print to the attached printer? it seems kind of pointless to have to have both computers on just print. Is there some other way where I can have only the laptop and printer on to print? Thank you.
