Trying to hook hp printer through a hub? Help.

Posts: n/a

I have two machines (Powerbook G4 & PowerMacG4) both are hooked up to the internet and working properly through a hub. I have a hp4500 printer with the ethernet port in the back, when I hook it all up, neither of my G4's can see the printer...but here's the strange part: If I connect the ethernet cable directly from the printer to either of the G4's, they see the can I get the printer up on the network, so I don't have to continually hook/unhook the ethernet cable? I am a total novice when it comes to networking of anykind.

Thanks for any help.

QUOTE Thanks
