Not sure what that means. Also please exercise your best judgment when posting in the forums--revealing personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, and address is not recommended. Such opinions may not be accurate and they are to be used at your own risk.

I've connected a printer using an ethernet cable from the printer to my wireless router.
