need to connect usb printer to wireless network base and my computer

hi. i just got an airport base station for my laptop, and i want my printer on the wireless network. however, my desktop computer also needs the printer, and is connected to my cable modem through my linksys router, not the airport (it has no airport card). how do i make it so both computers can tell the printer to print? thanks.

As long as your PC and Base Station are both connected through the router they should be able to communicate, no?
