Network Workstations Workaround

I want to connect a printer to our small (6 workstation) local network but I do not have an open network cable end. Is there a splitter where I can connect two devices? Is that against best practice?

Buy a small cheap hub off of ebay, will only cost you $20 or so.

You can by a small switch or hub to handle the extra connection. Won't cost you much, go to any computer store.

Just some advice. Use a switch, not a hub for what you want. .... Thinkpads_User
