I have a network in my home that has a PC Desktop, 2 PC laptops and my MacBook all through a Belkin router. All computers can use the internet wirelessly. I am trying to figure out how to set up my printer on my MacBook through my wireless network so that I can print without all the cable stuff. I really don't want to get AirPort because I don't want to spend more $$$. Just want to know how I can connect with what I already have. I am sure its easier than seems to be. Mac is always easier than PC right? Thanks for any help.

Not in this case - it all depends on the printer and whether its driver is network-capable. On Windows, you can easily tell the driver how the printer is attached. On the Mac, the driver assumes the printer is attached via USB and won't allow you to use it otherwise (in most cases).

What model of printer is it?
