I don't believe you can do that with the router.  Some routers have that ability, but not the Actiontec.   You will need to install the printer on your computer. Then set up a home network and turn on print sharing.  That should enable you to access the printer from any device on the network. 

 

Depending on the OS and equipment brands you have getting a home network to work as you want can be difficult.  But the only other way I know of to accomplish your goal is to get a router that has the ability to act as a print server and let it handle your wireless

connections.

Check the quick start guide that came with your Printer, or check the documentation available for your printer online as to how to work this out.

 

In most cases, you will first need to connect the printer to the router using either a Wireless connection, or a Wired connection (more reliable). From here, once the printer is connected you will usually need to install some driver package, which can be downloaded from the printer manufacturer's website, or installed from an included CD. The driver installation does include a wizard, so it should be a straightforward process once the printer is on the network.

 

Just note, you cannot use a USB connection to the Verizon supplied router for printing. The routers do not support that, currently.
