    Laptop to Printer w/o router

    Homeuser

      I purchased a Dell with an Intel WiFi 1000BGN.  I want to set my son up in his college dorm without a router.  I saw the Intel video on the ability to connect a digital camera and other devices to my laptop.  Can I connect a wireless printer, such as a Brother HL2270DW, without a printer to my Dell computer without a router?  (School won't allow routers in dorm)

       

      Printer spec:
