Simple question from simple user.   I have a PC running XP Pro, an HP Colour Laserjet 2600N and a GNET BB2083 modem/router.  For space reasons, I would like to locate the printer in another room of the house.  This room is wired by a RJ45 cable.

My question is, can I print from my PC to the printer in the other room using the RJ45 cable?  This printer has both USB and network plugs.

Any help appreciated.

If your printer can connect to the PC through a RJ45 or USB and it is detected under printers and scanners then you print it without any issue. Make sure that there is good connectivity between PC and printer.

As long as.....
01. the Printer is configured with an IP address,  
02. the Printer is plugged into the Modem/Router for network connectivity
03. the PC is plugged into the same Modem/Router for network connectivity
04.  the Printer device in Windows is configured to print to the printer via it's IP address
Should work a treat
