My wife has a laptop running Windows 7. My desktop computer in another room has Vista. Both have access to a wifi connection. How do I configure the computers so that we may share printers.

Control Panel/Network Sharing Center click the arrow on Printer Sharing and click the radio button to turn on printer sharing on both PCs

Click on System in control panel and check both PCs are showing the same Workgroup i.e. WORKGROUP
