what OS are you using? If it's home you have to enable each laptop, but (don't quote me) XP should see the network printer on each laptop without having to config. Anyone else??

On your host computer (with printer connected), go to Control Panel -> Printers, right-click on the printer, and click "Sharing". Click "Share this Printer", and give it a name. Make sure your firewall is off, and the laptop firewalls are off.

On the laptops, go to Control Panel -> Printers, and click "Add a Printer" on the left pane. Click on "use a network printer", and "browse for a printer" on the next screen, and on the next screen after that, search for your printer on the network. It will give you a warning, just acccept the warning. Now the printer's are ready to use!
