All you need is a print server connected to the router.

I have similar set up, all I did was make the printer a wireless share, I re- installed the printer etc on the lap top and now can print from my lap top in the lounge to a printer in the upstairs office all wireless.

All I did was to opt to Share the printer on my little home network, using the network wizard (XP).
Printer connected to desktop PC, partners laptop prints wirelessly.

Sorry forgot to mention my printer - Epson Photo R265. Previously had Epson Photo R300, also used wirelessly.
