I have a Lexmark (USB) printer and a Dell 8100 Inspiron notebook computer wih WinXP Pro SP2 installed.

I utilize a Belkin 54g wireless card and a Belkin Access Point for wireless internet access. I do not own, nor use a router.

I would like to be able to print without actually having to attach my printer to the computer. Is there a way to use this printer (wireless) without attaching cables between the printer and computer? Without a router?

I purchased a Linksys Wireless-G PrintServer, but I think I will have to buy a router to be able to use this device.

The only other way I can think of is to place another network card in the desktop and connect the print server to that, but the downfall would be that the desktop has to be running in order for you to print from the laptop.
