Several choices.
1. the printer is attached to the pc. Enable file & Printer sharing. Establish a homegroup or workgroup network between laptop & PC. Install the printer as a network device in the laptop. Downside to this arrangement is the PC must be switched on to alloe laptop to print.
2. Buy a network printserver device
3. Buy a router with inbuilt printserver

Q> Does the printer have Win7 compatible drivers available?
