I would like to use my hp c5280 printer on the network without my pc being on. My daughter works late and needs the printer on. Whats the best and cheapest way , I was hoping to buy a ethernet switch and plug the printer to that but not sure if that would work or not.
I have started my own thread on this, but if the printer is on, the wireless/ modem is on, and there is a network, why can't the laptop print via the network without the desktop being on? My Vonage phone plugged into the router works fine with the main PC off.
