    My printer is not wireless capable, but it is network capable. So the printer is connected to the router via a cable.

    Another is to connect the printer to another computer and share it. The other computer would need to be accessible, so connected to the router via wireless or cable.
    Regards
    John

    Most printers have at least one USB port. To avoid the inconvenience of disconnecting one device and connecting another, you can get a little USB hub with an A/B switch. (Allow 10 or so seconds for plug-and-play to detect the printer after toggling between the A computer and the B computer.)
