Can my wife and I share a printer over a WiFi network?

Here's the situation: we've got DSL going into a WiFi router out in the living room by the front door. At the other end of the apartment is our home office with three laptops and one HP OfficeJet 6310. The laptops connect to the Net via WiFi all the time. The printer is connected via USB to my wife's laptop. I would like to be able to send a document to this printer without unplugging the USB cord from her laptop. Is there a way to do this on our current set up? Plugging the printer into the router is not an option because of where the router is (and I'm not even sure the printer has a network slot, sorry if that's stupid ...). Thank you for your help.
