Customer Question

Would like to have my Epson Inkjet printer hooked up to my three computers. 2 of the computers use Windows 7, and the third uses XP. Should I get some sort of switch box or can the three computers be networked so they can share the printer?

Hi,
Since this printer does not have network feature, so you can either connect the printer to one computer, then share it:

; see section "Setting Up Network Printing"
For windows 7:

Or get a USB 4-port switch:
