As I understand it, the NoSplash is only needed if the printer needs to communicate with the internet. It's not needed if it's only going to be accessed by the local network. I'm guessing that if the splash screen isn't satisfied in some way, there's no DNS services. But that shouldn't be an issue for something being accessed by IP.

Keep in mind the printer's MAC address is probably different for wired then for wireless.

These "wireless switches" may be repurposed wireless routers being used as a dumb switch. I've done this quite often. You just have to make sure the wireless portion of the router is turned off. Also, if these indeed are routers, make sure nothing is plugged into the WAN port.

If they are being used as dumb switches, then there's no added security risk.
