Connecting a non wireless printer.

Recently bought a brother mono laser printer that is non-wireless or bluetooth. Is there any way that I can connect it to the USB port at the back of my virgin tv box and be able to print via my phone or Ipad that don't have USB ports? If so, what cable would I need. TIA.

What I want to do is connect the printer to the TV box & then connect either my phone or Tablet/Ipad to the printer via the tv box or telly so I can print wirelessly.

Sorry to say that will not happen at all!
USB port is for a future use only.

Re: Connecting a non wireless printer.

Something like this may work.?  It's a wireless print server that connects via a USB connection to the printer.
