View Full Version : 1 computer sharing 2 printers

Hi all, I've just upgraded from the trusty old DW9550 to 2 x DS40s. I'd like to connect both printers to my laptop so they can share the printing between them, what's the best way of doing this?

Thanks in advance.

Just install as normal and your OS will name second one DS40(1). You can rename if you wish but always connect via same usb port or hub otherwise your OS will install again believing they are additional printers.

Thanks Graham, but how do I make them work together, so they are both sharig the same print job?
