I have an epson l130 printer, which is a USB printer. In my office I want to connect all my workstations to this printer. But I don't want to dedicate a pc,install it there and share it with the home group. I have done it in the past but each time if I have to print, i have to turn on that pc which is sometimes a little bit frustrating. Can I connect it to my Wi-Fi router using the USB and will I be able to print then? N.B all my pcs including my wifi router have an IP address of its own. Will be able to print it without installing any hardware to each of my pc?

Most routers that feature a USB port can be used as a print server, but you will need to check the documentation for your particular router. There will likely be a setting in the router's GUI to enable the print server function. You would then be able to access the printer from any device on the same network.
