Another option is to put an inexpensive 4-port 1Gbps Ethernet switch out in your family room. The cable going to the family room computer now goes into the LAN/WAN port on the switch, and then the computer and printer connect to two of the other ports. No pulling extra cables through walls. That said, if what you do now works for you, then that's great.

As for the sharing issue, I am afraid I am at a loss. Other than making sure the steps Ian points out here, and those by Brink in that other link, I don't know why you can't do this. Hopefully someone smarter than me will come along.
