Windows 7: Wireless and printer

Wireless and printer

I have just set up a new windows7 pc. I now have the hardware to set up wireless dsl and a wireless printer. It is a VALET wireless router and an HP deskjet 3050 wireless printer.
So, my question is..what comes first the router or the printer? I have not opened the boxes, for fear of them not being compatible. Had to get the printer, my old canon didn't have the current driver for Windows 7.

Would appreciate a few simple step by step guidelines.

Thx, Grannyfox

I've setup several wireless printers and it's been easy. Just insert the CD that came with it and it will walk you through the whole process.
