Windows 7: How to connect an HP printer directly to a laptop using ethernet wire

How to connect an HP printer directly to a laptop using ethernet wire

I have an HP CP1518ni LaserJet printer that has a corrupted USB driver. (This is the current universal driver in Windows 7 and it does not work - reported frequently to HP).

There is no printer internet service available at this location.

The question is how to connect the printer to the laptop using an ethernet cable (crossover?) and set the configuration properly. The laptop has a wireless connection to a network, but they do not allow printers on the network for security reasons, and that is why all printers use USB. Since the Windows 7 USB driver does not work, I want to know how to manually configure the printer and laptop to allow direct access using the ethernet cable.
