You print to the printer from your wirelessly connected laptop via 2 different methods that come to mind.

1) Use a Print Server. This is a little device you purchase that connects between the printer and the network router. Once that is done, the printer can be accessed from any networked computer.

2) Printer sharing: The PC essentially shares it's connection to the printer. The only problem using this method is that the PC has to be turned on when you want to print from the laptop.
