Some printers support network in order to share its resources. Usually such printers have a network card installed when it was assembled. If you printer have a network card you will be able to find RG-45 port. But the best way is to check the manual or manufacture website.

If you share your printer through your computer which is connected to network then you don't a network card because the printer uses that one which is inside of your PC.

How do you connect a laptop to a printer hooked up on a PC?

So, for some reason, you do not want to connect the printer directly to the laptop. To connect to the printer via another computer means creating a network, which requires a piece of equipment called a router. Also, both the laptop and the PC will have to have Ethernet capability, which may require installing a Network Interface Card in one or both of them. The printer will have to be configured as a network printer, which requires allowing sharing in the Network Folder on the Control Panel. Then, after you have established your network, you will have to install a network printer on to the laptop. This is done by double clicking on the 'Network Neighborhood' icon on the desktop, then right-clicking on the icon for the printer and selecting 'Install'.

How many personal computers can print to the network printer?

As many as you want but not in the same time of course. It also depends on what kind of a network printer you have. If you have a printer which is connected to the one of PCs, then a number of computers which can send print jobs in the same time is defined by the PC RAM. You have a printer which has its own network card then that number is defined by the printer RAM (usually it's about 16-64 Mb). And the printer can handle only couple print jobs in the same time.

Select Share this printerwhen the printer's Properties dialog box opens and enter a name for the printer). # A network printer with embedded logic to manage network communication can be connected directly to a network with its own NIC (Network Interface Card)(pronounced "Nick"). # A dedicated device or computer called a print server can control several printers connected to a network.
