When you don't have the benefit of a print server on your home network, you can still print by sharing the printer.
To share your printer, open the Printers and Faxes folder on the computer that has the printer attached to it by choosing Start, Printers and Faxes. When the window opens, find the printer you want to share and then right click on it. Choose sharing from the contacts menu that appears. When the printer dialog appears, click on the Sharing tab. To get to the sharing options, click on the hyperlink under the warning text. When the Sharing tab changes over, click the Share this printer radio button and then type a Share name for the printer. When you're done, click the OK button to close the dialog, and then the X button on the Printers and Faxes window.
