Hi

I have a new laptop that I connect to my network at work with a wired ethernet card

I want to get my own printer and print to it wirelessly.

I do not want this printer to be added to my work network (they wont let me). I just want it to be like it was connected to my laptop via LPT or USB, but have it be wireless.

Is this possible? Any recomendations? I want a small laser.

Thanks!

You want to use this printer at work though, yes?  So essentially you mean you want a printer at work that you can independently connect to via your wireless card, but that isn't part of their network?

A wireless print server should do the job.

Linksys do one that support USB and parallel printers: http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=33&scid=37&prid=584

I haven't used one though, and there are bound to be others available, so may be worth shopping around.  It is definitely what you need to solve your problem though.
