Connecting a printer to wireless network

Hi, I have a printer (cannon MP390) which I want to connect to my wireless network. Any suggestions on how I can do it? It doesnt have builtin wireless capability and I was thinking if I could put some kind of USB wireless card on it, will be picked up by my network? I have no idea where to begin... I have both linux and windows machines on the network.

You could attach it to one of your PCes and share it. That's how I usually do it.
Do you use a wireless router? Does it have a parallel port connection?
