Unhappy Connecting printer to wireless network

Hi, how are you all, i'll really appreciate your help!!

I have a HP Deskjet D1360 installed in my desktop, that is using Ubuntu only as the operative system, it runs great.
I recently bought a HP laptop, that is using Windows Vista, i want to be able to print from my laptop without connecting the printer through an usb cable.
I'm using a liksys router to surf the web. With the desktop connected directly to it, and the laptop through wireless connection.

Thank you very much

You can either use samba as a print server, or CUPS. Either program has the functionality. I recently found a good how-to on this subject here
