Not on the router.

Yes, but for that I run p910nd on the router and cups itself on my desktop/laptop.
Works well most of the time, I managed to break it occasionally only if I power-cycle the router/printer/laptop in the wrong order, nothing to be concerned about.

I have this in /etc/config/p910nd:
config p910nd

        option device '/dev/usb/lp0'
        option port '9'
