HP Jetdirect and Wireless Access Points

Hi All,
Well, I have a Packard Bell computer with wireless router sited some way away from a HP LJ 5 printer. The laser has a Jetdirect card in it, presumably for LAN's. Could I connect this to a second Access Point via crossover cable and have that talk to the router and wirelessley print? At the moment I have the rather laborious task of transferring everything to USB dongle, putting it on laptop and then printing from there!
Regards, as ever,
Alex

Interesting question because I`ve acquired a HP2100TN with a jetdirect card. I cant get it recognised on the LAN either hardwired or wireless. I`ve got the dealer who supplied it going to talk me through it next week so unless someone comes up with a definitive answer I`ll post back later next week.
