Connecting a printer to the router

My first post - apologies if my question has been covered elsewhere or if I've posted it in the wrong place...
I have a MacBook Pro laptop which is connected to to the internet via a Technicolor TG582N Router which was supplied by PlusNet.  My router doesn't have a USB port.  I have an Epson Stylus Photo R300 and I would like to print wirelessly from my laptop to my printer.  Is this possible?  If so, does anyone have an Idiots Guide to making it happen?  I'd also like to print from my iPad2 and my iPhone 4s via the router if that's possible? Thanks!
