Ive got a lexmark wireless printer that I want to use in another part of the house and dont want to wire it to the router. Whats the best approach? I made sure that the computer and the printer are on the same IP address. Tried to search for a printer on that network from the laptop and it cant find it.

And I have a question regarding: " I made sure that the computer and the printer are on the same IP address"

What IP address(es) did you use?

On the computer are you able to run "ipconfig /all"( without quotes) via the command prompt?

If so, do so and post the results.
