I am trying to get my Kodak ESP C310 wireless printer working.

Customer Question

I am trying to get my Kodak ESP C310 wireless printer working. Kodak says it can not run through an ad hoc network. I have to use a router. I have no modem. I connect to the internet through an Verizon 5spot Mobile hotspot. I bought a Belkin Surf N300 router but the directions say you have to connect it to the modem. How can I make this work? I am a truck driver and need as few wires runnng around as possible. My previous printer was a wireless Lexmark that did run ad hoc. HELP!
