Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting
up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also,
your network-ready printer may have come with installation software
that can help you share the printer over the network.
are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer,
including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting,
Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.
For detailed instructions on sharing printers at home, please
refer to the "Get Your House In Order" article in the "See Also:"
For detailed instructions on sharing printers

by default, dell systems' switch for wireless can be done by pressing Fn and tap F2. The wifi light should lit up. Your modem is integrated to the motherboard. If you were able to lit up the wifi light, this should be able to detect wireless signals for you to connect to.
You should only need one wireless router for everything. The purpose of the router is to "route" multiple devices together. Your set-up should be something like this:
Modem connected to wireless router via Ethernet cable.
Wireless router broadcasting wireless internet connection.
Computer(s) connected to wireless router via cable or wireless adapter.
Computer with network printer sharing enabled.
Turn on wireless printer.
You should be able to detect the printer via Windows.
As far as I can tell you can only connect to other people's computers via the network router in a wireless application. Even then your brothers computer must be on "share" setting to allow you to do so. Check your airport is working in the network settings function in preferences, if yes, go into you computer on the side bar there will be an icon called "network" click that once and you will see what your airport card is connected to and if your brothers cpu is on that network.
