2 networks at once? Wifi printer

Post by Xpirmnt » Sun Oct 21, 2018 1:36 pm

I have multiple desktops running mint. One of them lives behind my TV and gets a lot of use as a htpc. It's other job is to bring Internet into my home.
I'm in my parents guest house and there is no internet, so I use a parabolic antenna to pick up their wifi on this pc and send it to the router for my own network. My printer is hooked to this network through wifi and is in another room.
Is there a way to add a second wireless connection on the pc, but to designate it as only for the printer? I have extra wifi dongles laying around to use, and plenty of usb ports on the pc.
