HP printer conncted on USR5461-router

I have a HP Laserjet 2300dn connected via USB on my USR5461-router.
With my old XP-laptop I could print wireless.
But since I had a new Laptop with Vista I could not print wireless any longer.
I upgraded my laptop to Windows 7 but I still cannot print wireless.
Is there a solution?

Does it show up under your network?

Do you have an IP for it?

Have you tried to install the drivers and told it a networked printer?
