I have a relative who still has, I believe, dial up. Very rural. He wants to print wirelessly to a printer from anywhere in his house. His laptop has wireless. His printer is not equipped with wireless. He would like some sort of dongle to put on the printer so his laptop prints directly to it.

Apparently, a broadband wireless router is not a practical solution. He believes he can "skip the middleman." And he will not consider buying a wireless capable printer.

Does anyone know of such a solution as he envisages?

He could get an HP JetDirect wireless print server and setup an ad hoc network.
