Dumb Question regarding designjet 1050c setup

I hope this isnt such a dumb question, but Im a little stuck on whats next. I have recently purchase a designjet1050c and I need to know how to get it online with my computer at home. Im sure what Is required to get it to be able to print jobs, I see a plug on the back of the machine for a network plug/cable, where will this go, to my router or my laptop, if it goes to my router what else do i need to configure in my computer in order to be able to send jobs to the printer, I though it would be as simple as a direct connection like my vinyl cutter through usb, but I see there is only a cat5 or similar plug on the back of the designjet.  Please excuse my stupidity for questions on a subject im just now learning about. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE to anyone who decides to help me on this.
