Default Connecting a printer wirlessly?

I have 2 printers that i want to hook up, but i dont want to hook up the printers to my computer, because they will be in another room.

1 printer has a ethernet port / usb port
another printer has just a usb port.

I have a wirless router that all my computers are 3 wireless 2 wired.

Can i do this?

It's called a wireless print server and you can buy them at pretty much any place like best buy or circuit city. Not sure how many printers you can connect to one print server though.
