I have ordered a USB TO LAN RJ45 Ethernet 10Mb/100Mb Network Adapter, which I plan to use to connect my HP All in One printer to my Wireless router. I wish to be able to print from any of my PC's which are on the LAN to it, but without having to have the PC to which the printer is at present connect via the USB port switched on. Can any one see any major problems? Also would the Adapter act in the same way as an inbuilt USB port on a router?
I understand that all I would have to do is ensure that the printer drivers are installed on each PC and give the address of the router (220.127.116.11) in the "add printer" set up. Any info would be gratefully received.
The TP-Link PU130U is a similar device which allows 4 printers to be connected and is only a couple of pounds more expensive. Note these are not wireless connections but don't know how important this is to the OP
Woolwell Thank you for your reply. The Printer is HP 1350 all in one, I do not want to spend out on a server when perhaps in a couple of years I will purchase a replacement printer which would be wireless anyway and the server would then become redundant and I only wish to connect one printer.
