Which Operating System?

Why do you need to use the internet? (Are the 3 devices all on your home network, or is one 'remote'?)

You have to establish a working connection from your RPi to your printer, and a working connection from your laptop to your RPi.

What make and model or printer? Have you checked whether it's supported with CUPS?
