Wireless what, Router, WAP? Any wireless router can handle a printer provided the printer is equipped with wireless capabilities. Whats your price range?

Yes, we need a bit more info...

Do you have a router already? Because unless you want the printer independent of any computer, you can just share it through the network - so long as that computer is on (provided the network is already setup and functioning properly).

What model printer? Some printers - primarily all-in-ones - don't like being shared. Most all-in-ones will only share print functions unless they were designed for networking.

You could also add a network print server to an existing network.

The Dlink DIR-655 is one of the best Bang for Buck routers out there.
