    Question Canon MP730 > Network Printer?

    I'd like to make my Canon MP730 accessible to both my laptop & my second PC.

    My main computer, the one that has everything hooked up to it (the D-Link DIR-655 router, the Canon MP730 inkjet printer, VOIP, etc.) is in the basement.

    I have a laptop & a second desktop PC (which is upstairs), both of which connect to the main computer wirelessly. Here's my setup.

    Main Computer - Windows Vista Home Premium

    Laptop & Second Desktop PC - Ubuntu 9.04

    Is there any way I can send print jobs to my Canon MP730 wirelessly from both the laptop & the second desktop PC?
    Oh you'll get yours, Microsoft.

    Not sure if this will be of any help - I am actually looking for some answers myself.

    However, I am looking at lpr and I've seen CUPS as two printer programs. You may want to search for these and most probably your Ubuntu has them already.

    I know there are ways to send print jobs to IP addresses but as I said, I am looking for answers myself.
