Do this:

Go to Control Panels

Go to the Network Control Panel

Click on the File Sharing button in the middle of the dialog.

Check the Printer option.

You will be asked to put the CD in, probably, and then restart.

Once you have restarted, go to My Computer. Open up the Printers folder. Right click the printer you want to share, and click the sharing option.

Now specify the name/password of the shared printer.

That's it. Anybody on your LAN can now print to your printer if you want them to.

Based on the question, it was a good answer and it is my fault not to have added a clarification=which is that the printing only happens when the 2nd Machine is on. However I'm informed thorough a answer received from the nowonder web site that this is normal.

Like many things dealing with computers the hype is not quite the reality. I will look into wether enabling wakeup on Lan via the installed NIC's will accomplish being able to print with only one machine being used. Do appreciate the quick response= Linksys tech support still hasn't responded to my email
