How to convert an EPSON (usb connect) printer to HOMEGROUP via wifi or Ethernet

Hi I am using an EPSON printer which is connected to my PC via usb. This is the only connection option on the printer. Is there a converter out there, into which I could plug the usb end of the printer cable and generate a wifi hand shake capabilty - OR alternatively a converter which would allow me to connec the printer into an ethernet plug.

The printer is already a part of my MS homegroup and my goal is to retain that, but move the printer to another location - away from the PC.

Thanks

James

Yes, are converters from USB to ethernet or wifi, is called print servers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Print_server
Your local dealer could offer one of this depending your needs.
