    google for 'printserver' which will get an IP address.

    It goes on the network and the printer connects to it.

    you can simply share the printer and not have to purchase anything. just right click the printer and go to share. you will need to install it as a network printer from the other machines

    of course, but you asked "Connect to the Network" :)

    Just share the locally attached printer, but that system must be running to use the share.
