    network printer

    why do we need to install a network printer(need to know manufacturer name, ip address....)? so complicated. we can just install a printer locally and make it shared. some printers use usb connection and it's very simple. thanks

    If you have XP+, and click on someone elses SHARED printer, it will automatically load the drivers and configure the printer for you.

    If it's a network printer, then it sits by itself, and you need to be able to find it.

    I just got Windows 7 working with a Belkin Wireless Print Server, and an HP MFC Printer!

    All I had to do was to change the port, to the printer's address

    thanks for your reply.

    and why do we need network printer since the shared printer is easier to control?

    pc has to be on and connected, or else shared printer doesn't work

    windows 7 will keep it in a queue, though.
