Basic question I’m afraid clever people.

If you want to print from a laptop and the printer has no wireless feature but is connected to a desktop PC, which is connected to a wireless router, is there a way to use that like a network?

Why not just plug it into the laptop?

But the printer plugs into the back of the PC which is a major hassle to get to and un route etc. I know that the other option is get another cable which will probably be the simplest as you don't need Desktop PC on but just wondered if the router thing was possible?
