Most offices, and some homes, use a local area network, or LAN, to communicate between computers and printers. To print to a networked printer, your computer must include the LAN Manager network software. The software will facilitate adding a printer port for the networked printer so you can print without being physically connected to the printer. Windows 7 makes it easy to add a networked printer.

Click on the "Start" button and select "Devices and Printers."

Choose "Add A Printer, " then select "Next." Choose "Add a Network, Wireless or Bluetooth Printer," then "Next."

Review the list of available printers. Select the printer that is connected to your network, then click "Next." Type any required administrative passwords for the networked printer.

Press "Finish" to complete the installation.

Go back to "Start," then "Devices and Printers" to make sure your new LAN Manager printer port appears as a printer choice.
