can an HP Laserjet 5n with ethernet card be connected to a wireless network

By alester ·
I have been given a wonderful old workhorse of a laserjet printer in awsome condition. It works great when connected to my Win98 desktop PC. I have a wireless network in my home and would like to be able to print from my laptop when I have big jobs to print. Can it be done and how.
I have downloaded the latest drivers to my laptop but can not see the printer either when it is connected to my router or directly connected to my laptop.

If Win98 can detect the wireless network, it should work

Connect the printer to Win98 computer via ethernet. Connect Win98 to wireless router. Activate file & printer sharing, or whatever Win98 calls it. I believe that's all it takes.
