Question about Computers & Internet
I am assuming that:
1. There is installed a shared printer in one of the other computers in your network; or
2. The shared printer is connected to a Wireless USB Printer Server;
3. The laptop can connect to the network and is authorized to access/use shared resources.
Procedure would be identical to installing a printer. Follow on screen instructions. Click on Start, Printers & Faxes, Add a Printer, Next, tick "A network printer....", tick "Browse for a printer", Next, Select printer choice, Next, OK, make default, print test page. It might take a bit of time while drivers are copied from the printer server to your laptop. In some printer that is directly connected to the network, you need to pop in the CD that came with that printer and install. Thereafter, you need to change the port setting in the Printer Properties to TCP/IP and point to the assigned IP address of the printer.
Hope this be of some help/idea. pls post gain how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

Tips for a great answer:
Your printer is not a wireless printer so you need some additional equipment to create a wireless printer setup.
If your computer is a laptop, its wireless function would work seamlessly in a wireless printer environment. If your computer is a Desktop computer, all that would have been required would be (if you don't already have one) an inexpensive Wireless USB Adapter to plug into the back of the Desktop to transform your setup into a fully Wireless Network. You need a USB Wireless Print Server to link your wired printer to you wireless router/modem. Click here for an example:
I hope this helps.
