How do I get my laptop to print from my desktop printer?

Question by rammerjammer: How do I get my laptop to print from my desktop printer?
Supposedly, I am supposed to be able to do this without buying anything extra. Here’s my specs:

Desktop Gateway to a HP Deskjet 812C USB

Laptop is a Compaq Presario

I really need to be able to print from here to there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!!

You’d need what is called a wireless print server. I really don’t see it happening without this.

Although if your not trying to go from a different room you can simply unhook the printer from your desktop and hook it to your laptop. To print you need to go to www.hp.com and go to support and get the driver for the hp deskject 812c
