print from wireless laptop

When I connect via wireless to my router with my laptop I cannot access the printer that is connected on a MS windows machine. However it works when I am connected wired to the router.

How may I print when connected via wireless to the router?

Info about my connections:
Laptop has Kubuntu
windows machine is wired to router
router: D-Link
printer: HP-deskjet (not a networking one but its set up as shared on windows computer)

Thank you

I could be mistaken, but I think the printer needs to have a wireless adapter added to it in order to print wirelessly. The only way that you'd be able to print to the printer is if you're hooked up hardwire to it through the router (as you stated).
