Operating windows 98se desktop using Dell 940 printer via usb cable. Would like to share printer with two Dell laptops operating windows xp. All three computers access the internet via Linksys wireless adapters through a Linksys Router. The two laptops have built-in wireless adapters and the desktop is using a usb network adapter.

Computers have all been downloaded with printer software.
I am very new to computers and would appreciate (in laymen's terms) step by step instructions on how to share the printer wireless from the two laptops.

Thank you for all your assistance.

Just the computer that is physically connected to the printer should have the printer software installed on it. This computer will act as the print server. The only thing left for you to do is to turn on File and Printer Sharing, and install the shared printer on your laptops.

Share a printer over your home network
