How can I hook up an HP4200TN printer wirelessly?

How can I put the printer on my network wirelessly with my SMC router?

Thanks for being willing to help me out with this.
 
I have a netgear print server and the model is WGPS606 with 2 USB ports and 4 RJ45 ports
The Printer is an HP Laserjet 4200tn with RJ45  port
 
What I normally do is :
1.0 Configure the Netgear Wireless using my computer and assign a different ip within my ip range that is 192.168.2.1
2.0 Hook up the usb from the Netgear wireless print server to the back of a printer with a USB port. In this case I DO NOT have a USB port
 
Question: How can I put the printer on the network. In other words, how can the HP printer connect with my SMC router? or is this even possible with what I have?

The printer is several rooms away from the router. I am looking for a solution to print wirelessly and cannot run a CAT 5 cable but I do have a print server as mentioned above. When I move the printer and connect it directly to the computer via ethernet it recognizes it immediately, however for some reason when I plug it into the ethernet port on the wireless print server is does not see it.
