Connecting Non-Wireless printer to RAX45 Router

I have a NON-wireless printer that I would like to use wirelessly via my router. Printer is Brother HL-2240.  I currently have it plugged in to the USB port on my RAX45 Nighthawk router.  I've installed ReadyShare and cannot see the printer.  

 

Can this printer be used via the router?  If so, what is wrong with my setup?  Does it need to connect to an Ethernet connection instead of USB?  The only connection out of the printer is USB, but I may be able to get a printer to ethernet cord...if it will work.  Help!  Thanks!

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for "printer".

 

   I also found nothing.  Not all Netgear routers offer the feature you
want.

   That's usually called a "(USB) print server", and, if it works at
all, then it should work with any router.
