connecting a pc to a printer already in use

HP Recommended
HP Officejet Pro 8630 e-All-in-One Printerxample: Pavilion 6530

Im sure this is simple, and I'm usually pretty good at networking things but for some reason this has me stumped. 

 

I have a printer that is connected directly into a pc.  I am trying to connect a second pc to the same printer wirelessly, but for some reason it does not see the printer.  Like I said, should be pretty simple but for some reason I just can't get it.

 

Any ideas?

Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

The Printer can be setup using only one method of connection at a time.
