Is it possible to connect to a printer on another LAN?

Yes, so long as there are routes between your network and the network the printer resides on, you should just be able to add the printer by TCP/IP address directly.

Hey, so our teacher had us set up our own routers, so that we would end up on our own LAN.
Then he put the printer with a static IP address on the normal network(LAN).
He wants us to connect to the from our LAN to the printer on the other LAN.

 

The router is set up like this:
- IP: 192.168.0.136(WAN) / 192.168.1.1(LAN)

- Subnet: 255.255.255.0

- Gateway(WAN): 192.168.0.1

 

The printer is as follows:
- IP: 192.168.0.20(LAN)

- Subnet: 255.255.255.0

- Gateway: 192.168.0.1
