My main computer is directly connected to the internet by cable.  I have a
combined router/modem unit. Have one computer upstairs connected wirelessly
and a lap top, also connected to the router / modem unit.  Have two fairly
recent  printers, but none of them are wireless.  Other than buying a
wireless printer, is there anything I can do to set up a wireless printer?
thanks in advance

Go to Google. Search for "wireless print server" (without the quotes). Take
your pick.

You don't say what OS you're using, but if you want to be able to
print - from one of the workstations on your LAN - on a printer
attached to another workstation on your LAN, I believe Windows (as
well as Linux)  provides the means to do that.

It doesn't have to be a 'wireless' printer.
