Question Wireless Printing

Hey Guys - just wondering if there is a way to set my printer up to my laptop wirelessly. My printer isn't a wireless printer, and is hooked up to my desktop which is upstairs. Could someone please explain a way (if there is 1) to set this up.

Thanks,
Silvalite110

There are a few solutions; cheapest is probably getting a wireless printer adapter for around $30 or so.

Are the laptop and desktop connected to the same network via a router with wifi? If so, easiest solution is to share the printer from the desktop with the network. The laptop will then be able to print using wifi.
