Question Networking non-USB printers to a wireless network

I have three computers in the house and wanted to network them so all three computers had access to my three printers. All three printers are older and do not have a USB connection.

I would like to know if there is a way to connect these to a wireless network?

I am somewhat new to the wireless capabilities so I am not sure what can be done.

Just get yourself a wireless print server. Most seem to use USB, but I did find some at Newegg that have a parallel port.

Here's a search I did at Newegg for "wireless print server". There's a few in there that have a parallel/LPT/Centronics port.

Air Biscuit is right on the money but I just wanted to point out another option. If you have a switch built into your wireless access point (such as a broadband router, etc.) and all three printers are located near the switch, you don't HAVE to use a wireless print server. You could go with a traditional wired network print server such as this:

It supports 3 printers via LPT ports and uses just one network jack on your switch.
