I never done this before.

so i want to know if i have to buy a printer that has a LAN port on it to use ethernet cable to connect to the router/switch in order to have a print server and share it over the network or any printer can be configured to be a print server as log as its attached to the server????

because i have 2 printers, but none of them have LAN port.
