If I connect all in printer to brightbox via an ethernet cable, would this enable wired and wireless connected pc, laptops etc to print ?

I would say yes as now connected to your network through the router.

I do this with a wireless all in one.

Put the supplied printer/scanner cd in the computer and ready to go.

Not sure about smartphones as would need the driver and scanner software so only compiuters i would think but might be proven wrong.

Have you bought the printer, what does manual say or if not can you get this off the manufacturers web site on the printer web page, what does it say.

Me just going on what my wireless one does. Needs the cd installed on computers so phones it wont do. not sure about ethernet connected ones. sounds posh, normally usb to single computer or wireless like mine, (can do both, no ethernet network conection).

Printer connected to your Bright Box router Ethernet port, your printer will work reliably if you configure it with a static IP Address.

I have my Bright Box DHCP server range configured with...
Example using (default) IP address.

DHCP range Start IP: 192.168.1.21
DHCP range End IP: 192.168.1.250

All static IP addresses must be outside the DHCP server range.

My Broadband Speed Test
Orange WBC 20 Mbps. Sync 11864 kbps Downstream, 1189 kbps Upstream.
