I don't think that will work unless you find some kind of USB to ethernet adapter that handles all the networking and translation to because your printer won't have any way of dealing with the network itself.

It helps to install the printer software on the other computers.
Then after the software is installed, you will look for a network printer, either in the printer software, or in control panel under printers.

We have three computers our home,  all connected by WiFi,  I have a printer connected to one by USB, I would like to be able to print from the other computers. I find conflicting instructions by searching Google. Can someone give me simple instructions on how to do this?
