I have a home network with 4 pc's and I want to add a printer to the network so that all pc's have access to it. However I don't want the printer to be locally connected to a pc (because it's in another room). I want it to be connected directly to the router.
My question is, what kind of printer do I need to buy? There are printers with only an Ethernet port and then there are printers with a built-in print server.
Is the print server necessary or does an Ethernet port suffice when I install the driver on all 4 pc's?
