Can this adapter be used to connect to the printer (that has just the USB socket) to use the printer via local Ethernet?

You will need a print server to connect your USB printer to an ethernet network. In addition to handling the USB-ethernet conversion, it also handles the printer communications. A number of these servers are available from companies like Linksys/Cisco and D-Link, and they do not have to be Apple-specific. Note that most (if not all) will only access the print functions of multi-purpose machines (i.e., not the scan/fax functions).

I doubt it. This adapter is for Apple computers only.
