I'm sorry but I'm really new to this. I have a desktop and a laptop both has
Windows XP. I recently purchased lynksis wireless network router to share
the cable connection. I was wondering if I can use this to share the printer
that's currently hooked up with the desktop. If so how do you do that? Any
help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Of course. The fact that the network is wireless doesn't change the way
you share the printer. Here are some links to help you set up your
network:

Take a look at the Linksys print servers.
