Hello,
My modem and router are connected to Win XP computer in one room. The ethernet printer is in another room with a Win 7 wireless computer. How can I get the printer to work on both?
 
Bit confused about your setup. If the printer is already on ethernet and connected to your router, you can just set that up as printer on your computers by setting it up as a new Local printer on a new IP port. Just get the IP off the printer config page, and use that to set it up.

If it's NOT on the router already, hook it up.

Install the printer in one of the computers ( I suggest winXP computer) and then share it for network use..

Simple!
