    Hope I am not asking too many questions at one time. course I should be outsode gardening or vacuuming house. LOL
    My big printer like I mentioned in my other post is across the room. hooked to old win xp mch. which I keep all unplugged.
    well looked at my printer booklet is show an ethernet port. Plus wireless plug in front. which I do not have and prob never want.
    But is there a way to hook it up to my ethernet ? Do I have to unplug it from back of my windows mch? or can I hook it to one of those double plug uinit adaptors. well I just also happen to have another ethernet plug there. But I use it for my Internet radio.
    any suggestions ? so appreciate your all patience with me.
    Thank you all,
    Jean

    Try getting a Switch so you can hook both the Windows Machine and the Printer to the Internet. (A Switch is like a router, but typically for less money.)
