I am looking to connect my printer to an Ethernet cable. I only have one Ethernet port and was thinking on buying a Ethernet splitter to connect my pc and printer at the same time. I have been doing research on splitters an came across that if you have two Ethernet wires connected to the splitter, only one Ethernet cable will work at a time. Will they both work simultaneously if I have a PC and printer connected?
I know they won’t work if you try to simultaneously use two PCs at the same time but I am not sure about having a printer and PC connected simultaneously. I will be connected to my printer wirelessly, so I will not connect my PC through the USB cable.
