Windows Central Question

We have previously had different wireless laptops connecting to internet via our Home Gateway box and each had access to its own local Printer.
The Gateway has a USB port which I presume is a print server port.
Can I connect in some way these printers to that USB print server port.
What extra hardware might i need
is the real answer to put a router off a free LAN port with the printers connected to router ports via Ethernet-Usb connectors

Wouldn't it be far easier to use wireless printers with the appropriate drivers on your laptops. I have two different HP wireless printers installed on my Dell laptop and just select which one I want to print to at the time.

Have you tested the port to verify it serves content to a printer? Is there a manual that says that is what the port is for?
