I have wifi in the house and no hard wiring extending back to my home office. I have no trouble printing to my MFP477fdn using a USB cable, but since the fdn doesn't have wifi capability, I'm unable to send to the printer via the internet - I was able to in my old home because I ran a cat5 cable from the router, 10ft away, to the fdn477. I can't do that here. Instead, can I run a cat5 cable from the computer's unused RJ45 to the printer? Will that effectively create a daisy chain? If this is possible, do I use a standard cat5e cable or a cat5 with the wiring reversed?

You can connect printer to RJ45 on the router and you can access printer using cable from computer to router using cable or wifi. Example
