Q

Should I use a USB hub to connect my HP printer to other PCs?

I have a HP printer with USB port and I want to connect it with four or five PC's with USB. Should I use a USB hub?
A USB hub is a convenient way to connect a large number of devices through USB connectors. By daisy-chaining devices through a USB hub, you can conceivably connect up to 127 USB devices together.
