Go to your printer under the control panel and select it. Then on the side bar click on Share This Printer and follow the onscreen instructions

You first need to set up a network for your house. You can do this by going to "My Network Places" and choosing to set up a new network. The on screen instrcuctions are rather straight forward. Once you have completed this, you go onto your desktop where the printer is originally hooked too, and go to the printers properties. Check the box that says, "ALlow this printer to be shared" or something alon gthose lines. It should work after that. Im probably forgetting something. Post back if that doesnt work.
