Choose a recommended Ethernet network
Use this section to help you identify what kind of Ethernet network you already have in
place or want to set up. Each network shown here uses a device, such as an Ethernet
router, to connect the network elements. A network connected in this manner is called
an infrastructure network. An Ethernet network provides superior performance,
reliability, and network security.
Ethernet networks might or might not be connected to the Internet. If you place your
HP All-in-One on an Ethernet network connected to the Internet, it is recommended
that you use a gateway so that the IP address for the HP All-in-One is assigned
dynamically through Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). A gateway can
either be a router or a Windows computer running Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).
