Printing on a HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One - Wireless

In my home networking setup, I am printing to a  HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One.  The computer that is hardwired into the ethernet cable going into a router is a Windows 7 eMachine.  The printer prints fine from the local machine cabled into the printer even though I was unable to install the CD software for the  HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One since it is not Windows 7 capable.  My wife has a laptop (Windows 7) and I was able to successfully set her up for wireless printing (i.e.. Windows 7 to Windows 7.)

 

My work laptop run Windows XP Professional.  I have been unsuccessful getting wireless printing to work from the XP machine to Windows 7 on the  HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One.  How do I get that to work ?  step by step ?

 

I have seen other forums and it seems to show how to do the setup in reverse (from Windows 7 machine to a Windows XP desktop....) but not the way I have it setup.

 

Can someone help me ?

How would I obtain the printer IP address as this is the best plan I can see to install the printer to date ?

How do you do the following as suggested by HP ?

 

"....You can find the IP address by printing either the Wireless Network Test Report or a Network Configuration Page."
