How to connect laptop to printer

I have a HP Officejet 4500 (not wireless) that is connected via USB to my desktop.  I have a router that I use for my laptop.  How can I configure my laptop/printer for shared printing?

Re: How to connect laptop to printer

Hi,

 

Your printer actually has a NIC port (& USB port) therefore the best option is to connect it to the router and you can share it from there. Page #13 of the following manual will show you how:

You only need a LAN cable to connect your printer to the router and configure from there.

 

Regards.
