You can press WPS switch of the printer for a long time more than 10 secs. and search the wifi device in your laptop.
Before that its assumed that you have done the driver installed on your lap top using usb cable. If not, you may do the driver installtion using usb cable for 1st time and then disconnect the usb cable and install the driver by choosing wifi. before click next the wps switch of the printer to be pressed about 10 secs.)
Or you can follow the link to down load the driver and user manual.
I will try to guess that you want your printer connected to your laptop as wireless.
-first you need to prepare all the things needed and make sure that you connected/installed the cartridges and you have located the port where your power cable needs to plug-in.
-2nd I hope your laptop does have an optical drive (CD/DVD drive).
-on the package of your printer there should be a drivers disk.
-you need to enter the drivers disk on the optical drive then just let it run.
-when you have the GUI of the driver there is an option to install everything.
-make sure that you did not connect your USB cable to the laptop if theres any.
-when running the driver it will come to a point where it will ask you to connect the printer (USB, Network, Wireless)
-if you have the USB cable, use that cable first to connect after you turn on the printer.
-later after the installation was completed, run the disk again then there should be an option to convert the connection from wired to wireless.
-if you dont have the USB cable comeback to me then I will give the the steps to connect it using wireless connection.
If you are not able to find your printer on your computer, then the simplest thing (but takes time) you can do is uninstall the printer using the companion disk that came along with the printer and install it again. This will ensure that all the drivers are well up to date and then you will be able to print again.
However there are another reasons for not showing printers in the Printers and Faxes folder in Control Panel.
1. Check your wireless settings on your computer.
2. Check the printer by connecting it using USB cable directly to your computer.
If it connects again using the cable, you may need to run wireless configuration once again using the same companion disk.
There is only two ways to possibly connect both the desktop and the laptop in the network. That is to purchase a router so you can connect them both or a route with a wireless and then the laptop (Which most new ones have a wireless capability installed) can connect wireless from anywhere in the home. If you already have a Cable or DSL Modem it may have a wireless capability. Otherwise you would have to get a wireless modem. Hope this helps. Bud
