MX922 printer - is it possible to connect directly to pc?

I'm having serious problems with my Comcast internet service.  The modem keeps losing the internet connection and the wireless gateway reboots itself.  I've just gotten another gateway from them and the issue continues. A technician is scheduled to come out in 3 days.  When our home network crashes we can't print to our MX922. 

 

Is it possible to connect the printer directly to a PC?  I can only find instructions on connecting it to a network.  I have an old unused Netgear router.  Could I connect the PC and the printer to the router without having an internet connection to it?
