You need a print server. It is a box that hooks to your printer and then the box communicates with your router. Here is a link for some on bestbuy.com

How can I add a brother 145 printer so all laptops in the house can use it wireless


This model printer has only an USB printer connection and normally connected to a computer or laptop.
To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless network there are a couple of methods.
Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a shared printer. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LAN cable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printer on the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on at all 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 the wireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed on all the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from the USB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will be the IP address of the print server.

How do I add a printer to my wireless network?


You would have to install a wireless print server, like a Netgear WGPS606... It has USB ports that you would connect your printer to... You could actually replace your current wireless router with this one or chain one with the other!! Or your other option would be to buy something like a TRENDnet TEW-P1UG wireless USB2.0 print server, with this you can make use of the router you have now... But either way they basically cost the same! Hope this helps!!

Wireless printing


Check the printer's manual if the software of this printer already supports winVista. If it is, you may connect the printer directly to the PC and check if you'll be able to print.

Hope this helps!
