Sharing HP OfficeJet Pro 8035 with old Win7 PC and new Apple iMac

HP OfficeJet Pro 8035
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

How can I use my new HP OfficeJet Pro printer with both my old (non-wireless) Win7 desktop and my new (wireless) iMac.  (I don’t need to use both simultaneously, but there are times when I’ll need to print from my old desktop.)

Your printer does not have USB port, it only has

 

  • 1 Ethernet;
  • 1 Wireless 802.11b/g/n;
  • 1 RJ-11 Fax

Its specs

There are few options for Windows 7 machine

 

  1. Connect it to network router with CAT5e or CAT6 cable and connect printer to SAME network wirelessly. You can share printer with your iMac
  2. Install wireless adapter on your Windows 7 computer and connect all 3 of them to SAME wifi network wirelessly. This way is much simpler. You can use USB wifi adapter for example
