Default Wireless Printer

I have a wireless printer, a wireless router and two laptops. Can I, and how would I, use the printer with the two laptops?

Yes, you can use the printer on the laptops. What make and model is the printer?

Actually I'm not sure it is wireless. Will it still work? It's an Epson Stylus SX115.

I looked that up and it's not a wireless printer. It has a usb interface.
There's 2 routes you can go here.
1 > Get a wireless interface for the printer which in most cases would cost more than you gave for the printer in the first place.
Or
2 > Get a printer with a network interface built in. This is what we have in my office. It's connected to a wireless router which has the network hard wired in to it. The office want to print something, it spits right out. I want to work from my wireless connection on my laptop, and because I loaded the drivers on the laptop, it too spits right out.

How far you want to go depends on how much you want to spend...
