how do make my desktop printer wireless?

Question by Kelly: how do make my desktop printer wireless?
so i’m trying to use a sharing network so that i can print things off of my laptop to through my desktop computer. i’ve done all the steps, but my laptop still will not ‘find’ the printer.

i thought that maybe i had to install the printer drivers, however, my laptop says that the printer drivers are not compatible with windows 7.

the desktop is on windows xp
the printer is a cannon pixma ip 4000

what should i try next?

Try connecting the Printer directly to the Router (if you are using one and if the printer allows it), then searching for printers of Windows 7.

Other then that, no idea.
