WiFi Router w/Print Server without Internet connection?

I need to setup a wireless print server at a location that currently
doesn't have an Internet connection but may in the future.  Rather than
buying two boxes (a stand-alone WiFi print server for now & a Wifi
Router later when the Internet is available) will a Router with a
built-in print server work?

Any particular models/manufactuers, or just the usual suspects?  Will I
need to disable any of the router functions such as DCHP or anything to
make this setup fly?

Thanks in advance !!!!

Internet access is irrelevant to your internal network. Just set it up
as if the router were connected to a modem. (The situation will be the
same as a system with Internet access when the modem is turned off).

Note that the SMC router/USB print server is on sale for $55 after
rebate, see "http://www.jr.com/JRProductPage.process?Product=3955203 "

This is one of the few routers that can simultaneously be connected with
WEP and WPA security, which can be a useful feature in some circumstances.
