    Greetings all; could use your thoughts. I've looked but haven't found a specific thread to answer. If you have a setup like this, let me know if you've had problems.

    Network multi printer
    V​
    AirPort or TC
    ^ ^​
    iMac and PC



    I know the mac side of the equation is a no brainer, just hook it all up, assuming the printer is mac networkable through AirPort or a TC.

    My question for the group: how easily can a PC laptop piggyback into this mac-based home network for printing? In theory it would seem quite feasible. In reality, anyone tried it for a home network?

    My aim is to have one wireless router for internet/home network, and one networked printer accessible to the mac and PC in my house.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I've helped others set that up, so I know it works. (PCs are equally easy to set up in this case)

    Thanks. I think I'll set up the mac side first, and piggyback windows later.
