Hello,

No you do not have to use a router. This printer has network capability. That is, if you wanted to connect 2 or more computers to it, then you would need a router.

If you are only connecting one computer, you can use a USB cable directly to it.

Just for your information, here is the support page for this printer. You may want to bookmark it for future reference.

No, because you can use this as a wireless printer as well which doesnt require a router. Check out the information here.

Toner ended


you might as well remove the toner and shake it several times. There is a possibilty that the toner might have residual ink left before it runs out..
