I used to have my printer connected to the wifi router/4-port switch and was able to print from my laptop (with wifi) to it. Last week we switched from phone line DSL to fiber optic bundled TV/phone/DSL system, and the DSL 2WIRE modem was placed in a diffferent room. Now my printer is no longer directly on the home network. The fiber installer hooked the ethernet connection of the printer to the ethernet jack of my desktop PC. The desktop itself is now wired as wifi client to the router via a USB WIFI adapter. How can I restore the printer back as a networked printer? I don't want to use the "printer sharing" mode of the desktop, as it is usually powered off when not in use. Thanks.
PS: my printer is an HP6310 Offfice Jet.
