I have a home network, comprised of:  
Netgear Wireless N Router,
Windows Vista laptop,
Windows 7 desktop,
Apple MacBook Air laptop, and an
HP Photosmart 2570 (network ip: printer.

My Windows Vista laptop and Windows 7 desktop can print to the HP Photosmart printer successfully.

How do I set up the Apple MacBook to print to the HP Photosmart printer successfully?

Note:  This is my first Apple Macbook laptop so I am not familiar with it at all.

Thanks for your help.

    Pull down the APple Menu to System Preferences (the Mac equivalent of Windows Control Panels) and go to the Print and Scan preference pane.  Click on the + icon at the bottom left to add a new printer.

    If the printer doesn't immediately appear, hit the printer's power button to wake it up.
