Question about Computers & Internet
A network printer can have many more connections. Most people have a wireless router that allow the whole household to use. The printer must have a unique IP address that was assigned by the router. From there the computer simply pints to that resource (IP via network cable) once it has been installed on each computer or device. Think of like a office setup.
Windows also allows for attached printers to be shared if the printer is not networked directly to the router (USB connected to PC), but the network setup still applies to the computers.
