I have a D-Link DIR-506L share port Go router with a USB port.

I was wondering if I can set it up with my HP laserjet printer for wireless printing.

Need a step by step guide for it if it''s possible.

I think you could do it if:
  1. The D-LInk DIR-506L router has an option for Bridge mode.
  2. Your HP printer has an ethernet port.
Set up the D-Link DIR-506L router in Bridge mode and have it connect to your main router wirelessly. Connect your HP printer to your DIR-506-L router with an ethernet cable.

The manual says that device has a repeater mode. That should allow you to connect to a WIFI signal. The manual doesn't list USB printer support, so I think the only way would be what @ktriebol said, use an ethernet port on the printer.
 
If you HP has wireless ethernet or an ethernet port, you don't even need the router to share the printer--just install the driver for network printing on all the computers and the printer will automatically be shared. :)
