Wireless printer

Is it possible for me to use my printer wirelessly?

Space on my desk is limited so I was hoping that I could put my printer in the cupboard (about 4/5 feet from my desk) and use some sort of wireless kit to still be able to use it without having to take it out and re-connect it everytime I want to print.

Printer is HP 5150 - USB 2.0 connection

No, you would need a network printer to be able to do that, a usb printer has to be connected through a PC.

So I cant plug it into some sort of transmitter and then plug the receiver in my pc?

No, the only way you could do it is to use a USB Extension Cable.
