Two PC's and One Printer I want to share my printer with two computers. Can I do that using a Hub.? I am using XP Pro on one PC and XP home on the other.

If the printer is network capable, use a network hub. Id the printer is USB, buy a two PC to one PC USB hub. Plenty on TM from $30 upwards. I use a 3 PC to 1 printer USB hub with no problems.

I presume some printers are NOT network capable. I never thought about that. I guess I have better find out about that before I go any further.
The printer is a HP Photosmart D6160. So back to google!!
