I recently upgraded to Win7 from XP. I want to share the HP LaserJet attached via USB to the Win7 machine to my kid's iMAC and MacBook machines on my home network.

I had it setup on my old XP machine but the new technology has made my memory obsolete. I don't see the printer from the Apples now. To use the printer, do the Apples need to have their own print driver installed?

Can someone point to a really easy step by step directions on the www?

Thanks, :smile:

Hi Gene,
The trick is to set the win7 network to work instead of home. Below are instructions from MS to set up the networking if you need them. When you get to the location part just select work. You should be good to go after this (still need to share the printer, etc). Let me know if you have more questions.
