    Try a dedicated printserver like the Netgear PS110 which takes up to 2 printers (parallel cables). The printserver itself connects to your hub/switch/router, as is your laptop and other PCs.
    This way, the printer will always be available as soon as you reconnect your laptop, due to the driver that is installed on the laptop (and other PCs) for this printserver.
