I have a desktop computer that is hooked up to a printer. Recently I purchased a laptop and router. I was trying to print from the laptop to the printer, but get the message that the printer is offline. Does the desktop computer have to be on in order for the laptop to print to the attached printer? it seems kind of pointless to have to have both computers on just print. Is there some other way where I can have only the laptop and printer on to print? Thank you.

Compaq Presario 2232US. The printer on the Desk Top works. From the Desktop, I have 'shared' the printer. From the Laptop, (Compaq)under Control Panel, Printers, the printer Icon is there, however, I cannot print (via wireless) from the laptop. The printer icon shows there are jobs waiting and READY. The lapTop (via a router) can access the Internet Explore. My understanding is I should be able to print using the 'wireless conection' and need not set-up a Network Connection. True?
