    Printing from laptop to unconnected printer
    I have my printer connected to my MAC. My wife has a Windows 7 laptop. How can my wife print to my printer from her computer?

    Wireless network, if you have it. Failing that, a simple USB connection, through a hub if you don't wish to disconnect your Mac each time printing from the Win machine is required.
    Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

    I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

    So, in other words?

    First install the printer drivers on your PC and Mac. Download and install bonjour on your PC.

    On the Mac:

    1. Go to System Preferences and open Print & Fax.
    2. Check to see if your printer is installed (ie. mine shows i960).
    3. Go to the Sharing preferences panel.
    4. Check the following: Printer sharing.

    On the PC:

    1. Install Bonjour.
    2. Follow the steps for setting up Bonjour.
    3. Once you have found your shared printer on the network and it asks you to specify the driver, go with the Generic Postscript.

    Is this correct?
