hi. i have a laser printer Cannon 6030 and i need to share it to my father laptop over my local network.
right now i did same thing through my windows but everytime he need to print , i have to turn on my PC (printer is connected to my pc USB port).
i googled around and found Dlink ADSL 2750U with a USB port but for some reason the website and manual is useless.
i am not sure what should I google, so my search was a failure too.
right now i have TP-Link 9960.
here is my question.
is it possible to connect my Canon 6030 printer to USB port of Dlink 2750U and all of my local network use that printer without needing my PC to turn on?
does this Modem support my printer?

This page from Canon -- https://support.usa.canon.com/kb/index?page=content&id=ART168461 says that your printer should have WIFI connectivity.
If that isn't the printer you have, then there are lots of used USB print servers selling on E-Bay for $20 - $40.

The manual for the 9960 router does not look like it supports a USB printer.
