    Connect multiple devices to printer

    I have a printer and it's wifi capability seems to be shot. What would I need to get so that I can connect my Brother printer to two desktops and 3 laptops via usb. Printer is a Brother MFC-L2700DW. Would I need to purchase a hub of some sort?

    StyM,

    It is not mandatory that I use usb. Could you provide directions on how I can connect via network?

    use the ethernet cable, if you have to wifi use a wireless access point.

    it should be in the back with a yellow plug in it. brother sells no laser jets with wireless and no ethernet, but they are sneaky.
