Is it better to use a USB cable or Ethernet for officejet 7410?

I have Windows XP Pro sp3, wired connection to a cable modem/router.  Just wondering which is better for my printer, the USB or Ethernet cable?

Neither one will be better for the printer, than the other.  It is just a matter of convenience for you.  If you attach your printer to your modem/router with Ethernet, you will be able to print with a computer on an Ethernet OR wireless connection.
