Windows 7: Adding Apple laptop to network

Adding Apple laptop to network

My main computer is a DELL running Windows 7. It is hard-wired to a BT hub and has an Epson printer connected via USB.

My last laptop, which has gone kaput, was a Samsung netpad running Windows 7 Starter and this connected to the printer no problem.

I have just bought an Apple MacBook Air and want to connect it to the printer but cannot get the network to recognise it. It is fully functional on the wi-fi network but just wont find or connect to either the main computer or the printer.

Any help out there please?
