Default Making a printer connect wirelessly

Hi

I am considering buying a new Brother Laser HL2037 printer but i need it to connect wirelessly to my computer as i have no room beside my computer. My computer has wireless capability built in and i use a Belkin router to connect to the internet at the moment (although it doesn't have a built in printer server).

As i understand it, i need to buy a wireless print server to connect to the printer itself and then i can send print jobs wirelessly from my laptop to the printer. Is this correct first of all? The other question is, what would be a good server to get? I've seen a HP print server but i don't think it is compatible with Brother printers.

I am by the way using Windows XP on my computer.

Thank you for your help!!!

Paul

if your buying a new printer why not get one with a wireless print server built in.

Doing a quick search i found a Samsung mono laser printer for around the same price.

I did consider that but i actually work in a stationers and the reason i wanted to go for the Brother printer was because i can get the toner cheaper. Thanks for the suggestion though.

If anyone can help with regards to a wireless print server compatible with this i would be very grateful.
