You'd be better off printing over the network to be honest, either with a wireless printer or just connect a printer to one of the computers then click share?

How often are two computers that close to each other?

Unless I'm missing something here, however not voting either way, as there are options that are likely to cost nothing, but might be something I'm missing

Lol, kinda complicated.

I have a desktop and laptop.

Laptop is all wireless.

Multi functional printer is connected to an Emprex box I have making it wireless, however it only prints from both computers.

Therefore, I need to unplug the cable from the emprex box and plug into the back of the PC, which is a pain if I want to use the scanner.

Therefore, I'm looking for a solution.

I found this, but just realized you need software to switch, so think I'm gonna go with

instead as it has physical switches so no need to install software
