Solved can a wireless printer be used with a wired computer

Specs: Windows XP
I am considering purchasing a wireless printer for my laptop with Windows 7. I also have a desk top with XP Pro. Can the printer be hardwired to the desk top and also serve as a wireless printer to the laptop? The desktop has limited ram only 1/2 gig. If so does it require any additional equipment?

If you have a wireless router you can connect to it with a cable.

✔ Best Answer
If both computers are connected to the same wireless router (which usually also has wired network ports) , or to a combo wireless router / high speed modem, to access the internet, then the wireless printer can connect to the router wirelessly and both computers can access the wireless printer via the router over the local network.
