do you just want to share the printer or do you want to make a network and share files/internet connections?

if you want to make a network then you'll need a wireless router (and obviously a wireless card in the computer you want to connect wirelessly)

if you just want to share the printer...you can google for "wireless print server" those devices would allow your priniter to just be a wireless device....then you'd still have to have a wireless card in each computer to conenct to it


i'd suggest doing the first option as it's a bit easier and you would need less hardware

also...Give This tutorial by SpaceCowboy706 a read, it's got just about everything you'd need to know..
