wireless printing question

Is it possible to get my printer to print from my laptop via my Belkin wireless repeater.
My desktop is is hard wired to the printer etc.
I'm fed up with having to disconnect USB cables etc.
Is there a dongle that can be fitted into the USB connection on the printer so that the laptop can talk to the printer.

Do you mean wireless router?

You can set the printer to be shared,and then set up home networking with file & printer sharing turned on,install printer driver thru' it.

No,but you can either have a printer server or better still one of this combinations click here

Looks like I'll have to stick with unplugging cables for a while then.
Thanks for your help.
