networking HP Officejet pro L7600 question?

Hi, I have 2 laptops running windows xp that I'm trying to network to my HP printer and one desktop which connects directlty to the printer with the USB cable. The desktop connects directly to my cradlepoint router with a cat5 and the two laptops are wireless, internet works fine on all of them. I would like to network to the printer without sharing from the desktop computer. I'm not sure what steps I need to take.
   I connected the Cat5 and all the basic steps like installing the drivers on the laptops. I still don't get any lights on the router from the printer. It's still printing for the ip address on the network conf page. It does print out a host name for the printer but no ip address. I'm lost on what to try, thanks.
