Can I connect it to separate LAN within the same premise so that all users on the second LAN can access the device for printing and faxing through this Ethernet connection?
For example, if the second LAN uses addresses in the range 10.10.10.1 through 10.10.10.255, then your printer would have an address something like 10.10.10.200. Generally, it is good practice to limit the address range handed out by the LAN's DHCP server so that you have a range of addresses available for 'fixed' devices such as printers. You don't want DHCP address assignment for the printer. I hope this helps.
