    My PC is connected by ethernet to my router. Could I still print things wirelessly?

    If your router has wireless and so does your printer, then sure.

    Edit : If you have a wireless card in your PC, you could set it (and the printer) to another subnet than the router and do it that way too.

    Yes the router IS wireless, and so is the printer
    It was straightforward on the laptop cos it has a wireless card/antenna (?) inside it, but my computer does not, it's CONNECTED to a wireless router
