Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Ethernet is a local area network technology. There’s “metro Ethernet” that creates wide area network connectivity. But, by and large, these printers use Ethernet or wireless to communicate with other systems locally and that’s why it works. If you’re referring to cloud printing for printers, that’s a different technology that requires an external cloud-service that has connectivity into your internal printer and vice versa.

    Is this a network printer/standalone printer. Is the printer Wi-Fi supported? What environment is there like office/your personal use? What OS is there? If there is an ethernet capable printer, just connect the printer to a network router using an Ethernet/LAN cable. And for Wi-Fi printer, associate the printer with a wireless router/another wireless access point. If this is a sharing/networking printer, you have to allocate an IP for the printer on the same domain/ IP series for easy setup.
