Dell / Latitude® e5500

Specs: Windows Vista, no clue
Hi there-
I am setting up a mobile business and am
being supplied with a Dell Latitude with wifi
capablities. I would like to have a printer in
another area (about 10 ft away) of my truck. If
both pieces of hardware have wifi capabilities,
do I need a router ? If later I want to add
internet, I plan on a aircard- so internet is a
non-issue at this point. Only one computer
(the laptop) in the picture. How do I get them
to play nicely and recognize each other? Not
sure what my OS will be, maybe vista 64 or
vista with downgrade to XP.

Thank you- I realize it is an amateur question- but I am trying to
do on my own without hiring an IT person to save money...we'll
see how long that lasts in this tech world!
