A network printer can have many more connections. Most people have a wireless router that allow the whole household to use. The printer must have a unique IP address that was assigned by the router. From there the computer simply pints to that resource (IP via network cable) once it has been installed on each computer or device. Think of like a office setup.
Windows also allows for attached printers to be shared if the printer is not networked directly to the router (USB connected to PC), but the network setup still applies to the computers.

How to map usb ports USB1, 2, etc.


You don't map the Universal Serial Buss. You just hook all the devices to the connection points (ports). The computer find them by device, MAC address, etc., not by port number. You can hook up to 127 devices to a computer, and the computer will talk to all of them regardless the physical point of connection. That's the reason, you can buy USB hubs with 4 or more connection points that plug into an USB port (how do you map that?).
USB1 - 6 is for you to know how many devices are connected to the computer via USB at a certain time.
So if your printer is configured for USB1, what ever port you plug that printer in, will be USB1.
