Here are the minimum details needed to answer this kind of question:
1. Operating System : Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista? 2. Printer make/model: (this is important to determine the wireless properties of printer) 3. Network Connection: (is the laptop connected to the same network as the printer)
If you are working with a new printer (see item 2) and you have a network on which you have your notebook connected, there are so many possible ways to connect the printer to the network that it's hard to say.
If you are working with an established printer that has wireless services running, you may need to know either the Network Name of the printer or the IP Address of the printer.
Your best bet is to make use of hp's extensive Wireless Printing Center (see link below).
If your printer and computer are Bluetooth capable then yes it can be done that way. The other way is through your wireless network/router. If you run a cable from you wireless router to your printer then you can use it wirelessly.
Network printing with a non-networked printer This model printer has only an USB printer connection andnormally connected to a computer or laptop. To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless networkthere are a couple of methods. Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a sharedprinter. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LANcable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printeron the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on atall times for the wireless laptops to print to the printer. OTHER METHOD Connect the printer to an USB print server and connect the print server to thewireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed onall the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from theUSB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will bethe IP address of the print server.

The printer and print server has to be connected to the wireless router by a network cable for you to print wirelessly from the laptop.
If possible connect a long network cable between the print server and the wireless router or move the router next to the print server and printer.
You maybe able to use a wireless repeater/extender but is it worth the added costs and complication. The extended range would invite hackers unless you secure your system.
Unless you have a wireless router to conduct traffic, you won't be able to print wirelessly to the AIO 966.
You will need a cable (and it's possible the printer didn't come with one). You'll need a USB A-B cable to do this. You can find one at any office supply store, Radio Shack, Target... it's a common part.
Then with with laptop and printer on, plug in the cable to each and Windows should recognize the device and you'll be able to print.
only if it's wireless or it can be wired to the network, I have both kinds. My wireless has an ethernet card that connects to any computer in the house, just by running the software in all of the machines. If you have no wireless card you can still share the printer in by selecting shared in the properties menu of the printer, it will still need to be wired to one of the machines If it is not a wireless device.Another way is to connect it to a home network through the router, but it will still need to be connected to a Lan through the router and thus have an IP address has network printing capabilitys.
