Lap-Top/PC connection to printer

At the moment I have a printer linked up to my Windows Vista PC upstairs with a wireless connection to my wireless modem router downstairs. I have a lap-top with Windows 7 also connected to the modem router via wireless for Internet access.

I was wondering how I could link for to print from web pages that i am viewing on my lap-top to the printer up the stairs. Can this be done?

Any Advise would be off help

Yours Sincerely
