You probably want a Network Print Server connected by ethernet cable to your router. This means that you can connect wirelessly to the router, and thus use the printer without a wired connection to the PC, but the connections from router to print server to printer are "wired". This is the arrangement that I use.

There are also Wireless Network Print Servers, which would remove the "wired" link between router and print server.
