1 Printer for my Network

Typically I'd have the computer that the printer is connected to on all the time so that I can send print jobs from any computer on my network. However, I'd like to make it so I don't need to have the computer on all the time. I heard of some sort of box that acts as the computer connected to the network printer so that I may send print jobs anytime.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Nys,

What you are looking for is a "Print Server." Here is an example of a linksys print server. This takes your printer and connects it directly to the network, eliminating the computer in between. Most major electronics stores have a selection of print servers to fit your needs.

Good luck!
