Hi all, ,
Will try to keep it breif and to the point !

I have both a desktop and laptop connected wirelessly to my BT homehub. :)

The desktop is VISTA PREMIUM and the laptop is XP.

I have emails on my laptop that i urgently need to print off but, i cant find any way to do this.
I have loked at the sticky at the top of this section and its not helped me at all.

Short of installing all the epson crap on my laptop and connecting it via usb printer cable i cant think of any other way to do this :) :)

I have tried and tried and tried to network the two together but mostly its not worked at all.

Any ideas ? ? ?

Can i connect my laptop to my desktop via usb cable and treat the laptop as an external drive ? ? ?

Many thanks, , kev

Hi Kev
Is the printer connected to your router or your desktop ?

Hi Peter, ,
Its attached to the desktop.
The router is 10ft away to be near the phone point.
