Can I print from my HP LJ P1006 wirelessly via hookup to my Netgear N300 Router?

    I recently bought a practically brand new HP LJ P1006 with an extra brand new HP brand toner cartridge for $1 at a local auction. I have tested it, and it works perfectly, so all is fine there. I would like to know if it is possible to print wirelessly to it at all. I do not have it hooked up to a computer right now, we only have two laptops, so there is not a desktop to have it hooked up to in order to put it on a home network (I believe that is how that works).

    I do have a Netgear N300 router with a USB port however, and I was thinking I may be able to do something there.

    Is it possible to hook this printer into my router via USB and then be able to print to it from our latptops? If so, how would we go about setting that up to do so? Thanks a great deal in advance for any help you may be able to offer!

    It would have been better for Steve to give the direct link, but the page he talks about is the Installation Guide that tells how to connect a printer to the router. :)
