Accessing a printer shared from windows

I previously had an HP 5510 all-in-one printer that worked great in both 
Linux and windows. Unfortunately, it didn't work with networking so I 
had to unplug it from one computer and connect it to the other to be 
able to print with both computers.

Right now, I'm looking to get a new HP all-in-one printer that I can use 
with both computers. I think I'd prefer to have it connected to the 
windows machine and set up a share so I can access it from Linux, as 
opposed to putting it directly on the network, since my network is 
wireless and not many printers do wireless. I'm kind of leaning towards 
the HP 6310. Any thoughts on this configuration?
