Hi All,
I have a laptop and a desktop, with only 1 printer. I do not need Wireless networking,just a way of being able to connect both to the 1 printer.
I have a docking station for the laptop with 4 USB ports which is what I really want to connect to the Printer as well as my desktop.
Both are running XP Pro and are only 2 metres apart.
My wife does not want networking or having to unplug and plug cables etc.
Can you get a hub for printer connections as you can for USB
Cheers,
Flobby

I use a Belkin USB Switch. It allows up to four computers to connect to a single USB peripheral, in my case an HP All-in-One Printer/Scanner/Copier.
