    Well first off both have to be on the same network. Now I'm going to assume you have the notebook on a wireless network that connected to the same network as your desktop.

    If that's done, just enable this:

    Then your printer should show on the network as long as your desktop is turned on.

    LOL, I can relate to that. When we bought our Brother wireless laser printer, I noticed that the toner drums are almost as expensive as the printer itself. I told my wife that once our initial drum ran out, it'd probably be smarter to just buy a new printer! :D

    Of course, that wouldn't be the "green" thing to do though. :eek:
