Win 7 Pier to Pier Network

I recently purchased a Lexmark wireless printer, the spftware was vista I downloaded the new Win 7 software. Inastalled everything no isues and use Verizon 3G wireless for internet access. I tried to set up a pier to pier network to communicate with the printer. Mu computer network connection in the icon box says" waiting for connection". I hook up the usb cable to the printer and follow install directions but it will not connect, (the printer cannot connect with the laptop). I created the network name with PW and it apperars to be ok on the laptop. I also had an old netgear wireless system I used when I had cable. Set it up and the printer was able to connect with the wire less along with my laptop but I was still unable to print wirelessly. More than likely I am just another loose nut behind the keyboard any suggestions or help is appriceiated.
