    Absolutely the way to go.
    If you've got HP printers, the HP jet direct cards work great. I've got two of them. One for my personal laser jet in my shack and another to the HP multi-function the wife has at her desk. Can print to either printer and don't need a computer one and a local printer shared.

    My HP 1600CM inkjet has a plug-in Ethernet card, but it is over 10 years old.

    When new, it was almost $3,000. Printers then were networked, so one office didn't have to spend $3k per workstation for quality printing.

    Now printers are less than $100 each, so cheap it is cheaper in some instances to buy a new printer than to replace the ink cartridges. Hence, there is no longer a fiduciary need to network a printer.

    Thought I'd mention, I bought 5 1600CM's for $50. Got lots of spare parts . . .
