We have Hp laserjet 4250 printer in our office. Currently it is connected to the computer of my office mate and set as shared printer so we can connect and print. But we encounter many problems like entering the authentication security of the host pc, block by the firewall, printer offline and big problem if the user of host printer is absent. Is there a way to make our printer a network printer so we can connect to it more easily?
How to set-up hp laserjet 4250 as network printer?
Here you did not write the printer model. is it Hp Laser jet 4250 N or D or T or SL. only N model is network printer and you can connect with the RJ-45 connector with your network switch.

Remember that this computer must be connected with this network.
