Sure, you don't even need the router.  You would just need to properly configure an IP address on the printer in the same subnet as the compuer.  Then install the proper printer port and driver on the PC and you'll be good to go.

so then to be clear,
for i am not as familiar as you might think....

set the printer to a static IP ( which i can ),
Then configure the port on the laptop, and use that port for the printer?
