You can use any printer on a wireless network.

You just plug in either the serial, parallel, or USB cable into the main host computer, with the router plugged in, and then make sure the printer is shared.

The other wireless computers will just have to search for it on the network.

He's full of it (not you, the HP rep), it just means that the printer isn't a standalone network printer. Some you can setup as a network printer via its own network inputs, it gets its own IP address and the works. Otherwise, you just hook it up to one of your systems and share the printer.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
