If you have the printer currenly connected to a PC on your network you could "share" the printer from that PC. Of course the PC with the printer connected would need to be on when ever you wanted to print from your laptop. This would not require any additional hardware and you would not need the printer connected to the router. If the overall goal is to not share the printer through an existing PC, the other solutions would be required. Here are four options.
1. Share the printer through an existing PC on your network.
2. Use a USB to ethernet adapter or print server.
3. Install a network capable printer.
4. If your printer is a network printer, set the network address to a static address that is not in your DHCP address distribution list in the router, and connect it to one of the lan ports on the router. You would need to have your laptop printer driver set for a TCP/IP printer port equal to the network address set in your printer.
