Our office has 2 new computers (A & B) running windows 7.  A is directly connected to a (non-wireless) printer.  Is it possible for B to print wirelessly thru A to the printer?
 If not how can B connect to this printer?

You;d just share the printer from computer A and then install the printer as a network printer on computer B.

Ryan is correct for the cheapest way of doing it, but remember, computer A must be on for Computer B to print in that scenario.
