Network the two computers with the wireless router, install the printer's software on the laptop, then reboot both computers and the wireless router and look for the printer in the laptop's start/settings/printer.

If you don't see it there, click on "Add Printer".

on my mac laptop i shouldn't have to load soft ware, if there is a wireless system with a printer installed on to it, my laptop should pick it up like it does when i'm at the apple store, if i go to my printers in my system perference i see there printers that are available that they are running on there wireless system. i think i'm missing an entry on my laptop or desktop pc somewhere.
