I have a client with a Windows 2003 Server. There is a wireless router and a networked (by IP address) printer. Is there a way to allow a guest with a laptop to print to the printer using the wireless connection, without joining or logging into the domain?

Yes.  Just follow the add printer wizard and create an TCP/IP port for the printer (specifying the printer IP address at the right time).

If you allow people to print directly to printers, then setting up a local printer in Windows to point directly to the TCP/IP address of the printer will suffice.

  If you prefer to have them print through your print server so you can have a log of what was printed but don't want them to have to join your domain to do so, let me know and I'll provide specific instructions.
