Is it possible to use the HP3522 wireless from a laptop w/o the router?
IF I AM SENDING THE PRINT JOB AS A DESIGNATED WIRELESS NETWORK BROADCAST, NOT FORMATTED AS A PRINT JOB BUT A NETWORK BROADCAST - I CAN SEE WHY THE ROUTER. BUT COULDN'T THE LAPTOP OR HP S/W PRE-FORMAT THE SIGNAL IT ALREADY KNOWS AS A PRINT JOB INSTEAD OF A NETWORK ANNOUNCEMENT, USING THE SAME COMMUNICATIONS MEDIA (I.E., THE RF 2.4GHZ FREQUENCY RANGE) INTO THE SAME SIGNAL TYPE OR FORMAT THAT THE ROUTER DOES ON THE SEVONDARY BROADCAST THAT IS SIMPLY A RESULTANT OF ITS ROUTING TABLES AND RETRANS'D. WHY DON;T WE DESIGN SIMPLER SOLUTIONS FOR THE HOME USER AND ELIMINATE THE USE OF A ROUTER IN A HOME NETWORK BY FORMATTING THE ROUTED PRINT JOB SDTRAIGHT TO THE PRINTER JUST AS THE ROUTER DOES USING THE SAME MEDIUM (GHOST ROUTING IN SO MANY WORDS).
JUST MY TRAIN OF THOUGHT, BUT MAYBE I AM MISSING A KEY COMPONENT. PLEASE ADVICE.

No offense intended, but HP has taken all the thinking and worry OUT of the equation. You seem to be trying to make the simplest task turn into a Herculean conundrum. You can email directly to the printer itself through RJ-45 connected or 802.11 WiFi internet-connected network. Also, the printer has built-in router for devices to communicate directly to printer WITHOUT ANY NETWORK environment being established. HP got this one right and it works perfectly.

I don't see how... The router controls the network. The printer only seeks out for WI-Fi connections, maybe if your PC has tethering. I think you are smarter than the printer DRDave.
