To share a printer over a network, the printer has to be a network-capable model. You can't just network any old standard home printer.
not necessarily. i have seen people having connected really old printers [HP deskjet 690c] to their main PCs, which work on parallel port connections, and they're using them over a wireless home network flawlessly. all u gotta do is (like said on the microsoft article link u posted) set its properties so that it can be 'seen' and accessed by other users on the network. i tried the my network places thingy after enabling my printer to be shared and i cud access the scheduled tasks, printers and scanners connected on a pc from the other pc. plus if fax abilities are enabled, i can access the fax feature too. and they all work. i performed a lot of testing and experimentation, i encountered no problems. along with all this, i can already play network games and share the internet connection, but why o why cant i share files? some say networking 2 diff OS (or 2 diff versionsof an OS) isnt really possible. but cmon folks, win2k n xp r not very different in their basic structure, so this shudnt be a hard thing to do. i've never done a lot of networking before, plus sharing files over a bluetooth network is too slow and troublesome, so i really really need good simplistic solution(s).
