Default anybody know how to share a computer on a network?

I have a D-Link DIR-655 with shareport...not exactly sure how to use that, but otherwise how do I share a printer that is hooked up to one computer with a computer that is on wifi?



so like (laptop)--wifi--(wired/wireless router)__(Comp)__(printer)

does it matter if it's a mac and do I need to install drivers on the laptop as well?

The answers to this are in the SharePort manual.

Default

gah....why can't they just use print instead of having me go on a goose hunt...

e-manuals need to stop...when you buy a product it should be in the fraking box...keep them up for people who lose the manuals, but don't make that the only place they're at!!

thanks for the link
