To share your printer you will need to do the following
1) On your desktop Click on Start>Control Panel>Printers and faxes
2) Right click on the printer in question and click on sharing
3) Put a dot in 'share this printer' and give it a name
This has now made your printer a shared one on the network
On your Laptops click on Start>Control Panel>Printers and faxes
2) Click on Add printer
3) On the resulting screen put a dot in the option 'A network printer, or printer attached to another computer'
4) Then follow through and the printer you named on your network
This will add the printer to your laptop and will allow you to print
Sorry to inform you that your printer can not be connected directly to your laptop. It does have network capabilities but that is optional, meaning some more hardware is required for you to connect to a network. You must get a USB printer port to be able to connect the printer to your laptop. However if you have a PC then the printer could be connected to the PC and PC to a network on which laptop is also a node. The printer would have to be made shareable.
