Can I connect to Internet using a printer?

  1. I currently have a printer connected to my ethernet hub. 3 PC's are using this printer through a connection to the hub. The 4th PC is directly connected to the printer via USB, but not connected to the hub. Can I connect to the internet with the 4th PC through that printer by any means??

    Ok thanks for the info guys. I'll just run a CAT5 to the hub from that PC and call it a day.
