What are the different methods of networking? This is the major issue now a days because me and my brother purchased two new computers but we do not know how to create links among those two computers? I also have knowledge of different types of networking but what is the best way to connect that will give speed as well as accuracy.
If you help me then I will solve my problem in few minutes.
This issue should be resolved because we have to share more of our work with one another and other major reason is that we have only one printer. So this will link that one printer with both computers and we will use one printer on two computers very easily.
How to connect tow different PC’s with one printer through networking?
For the connection of two PC’s with one printer, you first need to set up a LAN or a Local Area Network. For this, please follow these instructions:
Firstly you could either use a network adapter in your home office. For the view of the status of the network connection, double click on the network connections and right click on to the particular LAN and select the status option.
Now again right click on the LAN and on properties and then select the “Show icon in taskbar notification area when connected” check box.
So this will enable you to automatically view the status in the taskbar area. Get a switch to connect two computers with one printer. Get a crossover cable which connects your printer to the computers and enable to share to both PC's to the printer. You must ensure that you should have a router.
If not, then purchase a PSUS4 print server and assign static IP on the network cards and print server. If there are no network ports, then you can use either USB or parallel port adapters for your purpose.
