I've been on a home network with my wife using a router for years--but we've
NEVER been able to access each other's printers. We've tried many different
configurations but nothing seems to work.

Is there anyone out there who really knows how to do this? We would be
gratefully appreciative.

There are lots of ways that printers can be connected, serial port, parallel
port, USB, Network hub connection etc. And some models can't be shared- I
have a Panasonic laser that can't- but my Epson Inkjet has instructions on
how to share.

So it depends.

That's really as much as can be said since you haven't really given any
info, apart from look at the website for your unnamed prineter
manufacturers- if they are like Epson there may be help there. If not email
their support- that is what it is there for- but do tell them what printer
you are using.
