Wireless print server suggestions for AIO

I have a single laptop(windows xp), netgear wnr834b wireless router, dsl connection, and just got a canon mp530 AIO printer. For convenience, I would prefer to print wirelessly, and am looking for advice on a print server for this setup. The printer and router are next to each other in the same room so a wireless model shouldn't be necessary, and do the wireless models sacrifice any performance? Also, (per searching discussions on this topic from last fall) in a typical network setup(more than one pc) I understood print servers would render the AIO printers into just 'printers'- Is that the case for a situation like this where the parent pc is the only one in the network? I need all of the services of this AIO printer for my office. Anything on this lately...? Thanks
