I have an Epson R2400 A3 printer new but not connected as I am still reorgansing my cottage. I have a gigbit network connected by an 8 port switch on the ground floor. I have a CAT 6 connection to a PC on the 1st floor and want to install my printer on the first floor. Since I have a Gigabit connection to a PC on the 1st floor could I buy an additional network switch to connect my printer rather than try to route a new cable from the grund floor to another PC.
I can't move the first floor PC to the location of the R2400 which is large. So I'll be using a spare PC to service the printer
