It is now connected to a desktop computer and the desktop is connected to his router. What he wants to do is eliminate the desktop but still be able to access the printer from his laptop which is on the ether net via cat5.
My question is, what would he need to connect the printer to the network without going thru the desktop. The printer does not have an ethernet jack but it does have usb and the router does not. Router is cat5 or wireless only.
