      Exclamation sky router be used a network router?

      Hi,
      Is it possible to use the Sky Router as a Network router?

      I have an old laser jet printer, which I cant connect to my laptop because laptop does not have the right connection required.
      Is it then possible to use the Sky Router box as a Network Router as well. I want to connect the printer to a Network Router and then use a different cable to connect printer to laptop.

      I would be very grateful if anyone can give me some sort of advice.

      What connection to the printer is needed? If its ethernet then yes you can plug it in to the router but if the printer needs a fixed IP you need to set it to 192.168.0.254 or something similar so it sits in the same network range. Once it's on the network you should be able to print from it from any pc sat on the same network/ router.
