Does SmartMesh Networking on the ZF7372 allow the LAN port(s) to connect to the greater network? ie can I plug a printer into it?

I understand the SmartMesh will let me deploy the WAPs without running wires to each, but will it let then LAN port(s) be used for uplink back to the primary network?

It would be handy for printers in remote locations.

That is correct. You can indeed abuse the ethernet ports on mesh nodes as a wired bridge. It is extremely helpful if you have got an island of computers and peripherals.
