I have 2 pc that connect to a router, switch and a network printer. Both can surf the internet.

There is another pc standalone without any connection ... for some reasons :thumbsup:

I bought a colour laser for that printer and it is connected and working well.

Now I am wondering is it possible for me to connect to that printer by adding another nic on my internet pc?

I just want to use that printer but not allowing that pc to connect to the router....

Please advice.

Are you wanting to access the Printer via the network or just the individual PC?

If you can connect the printer via Ethernet cable can you not just plug it into the router/switch?

But to answer your question you wouldn't be able to block a PC from the network but still use the printer on the network if it's connected to/through the blocked PC (to my knowledge).
