USB to Ethernet for HP AiO

RobKanj asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-15
Hi All
Client has a HP 6310 AiO printer. It only has a USB port but due to the office move there are no machines close to it. There are however LAN Wall ports.
Am I able to get a USB to Ethernet converter and connect it to the LAN Wall port. How do I give it a static IP address so I can install the print drivers on the SBS 2008 server to share it out on the LAN. Does the USB to Ethernet device hold the IP address?
I have researched these devices but am unsure whether it will really work. If any experts could advise as to a particular USB to Ethernet model that fulfils the criteria then that would really helpful. Thanks in advance
