Sharing Printers

  1. I have an sbc wireless router; wireless laptop; desktop connected to router via ethernet cable; & TWO printers connected to the desktop.
    Problem: sending stuff to either printer from the laptop is tiiiiimmmmeeee consuming (takes a long time to buffer). Laptop is older model with only 702 mb of space left on the hard drive.
    Is there a "printer router" with RAM for buffering that I can connect to the sbc router and have the two printers connected to the printer router instead. OBJECT: to speed things up.

    IS POSSIBLE???????

    lack of free space is always an issue for performance.

    use the CP->admin tools->Disk Mgmt to see the HD
    right click on its name and use DISK CLEANUP botton to toss the old updates
    and temp files.

    Hey jobeard, I used to live in Simi Valley just over the hill on 118 from you!
