Yes. You will need ethernet cards for both computers, and a router. After cabling the system together, you will need to enable 'printer sharing' on PC2. Then, you will have to configure 'netowrk printer' on PC1 to be the printer on PC2.

Can you still extend windows media center without an extender?

Not exactly. If you have a PC with Windows Vista Media Center (VMC) installed on it--let's call this PC1--you may set PC1's "Recorded TV" directory as a shared folder for the second PC's (PC2's) local Recorded TV directory. In this instance, you could watch and play back recorded HDTV or SDTV from PC2. By setting sharing and permissions on content directories on PC1, you could also set the same media access points on PC2. That said, if PC2 is being used as an 'extender', you should be aware that it cannot stream Live TV from PC1. PC2 cannot access any of PC1 VMC's services or features; it can really only look at the same directories and playback from there.
