Yes, it needs to have ethernet to your router. You'd have to have enough ports on your router to accept it. Usually when you install the software (you may have to reinstall the printer software), it will find the printer on the network. It can be that easy, or it can be more difficult. Obviously you need to install the software on all computers that needs to access the printer. At that point, your USB should not be used.
