Mel,
When you get it up and running go through the settings very carefully !
Disable all cloud services, disable auto updates and automatic services.
My HP network wired/wireless printer, if given free access to the internet would have a field day with my data allowance.

Hughes net does offer wifi but u have to purchase a wireless router. This can either be done through the company or at a merchant store like walmart kmart or target. Office depot and etc.. it is a lot cheaper to purchase through walmart . And belkin is one of the better brands

Mel,

The disk I was referring to is the printer setup CD.  You will need it to run the setup for the printer, and it's during that setup that you would connect the printer to the computer wirelessly.

Does your Toshiba laptop have a CD/DVD drive?  The reason I ask is that some of the much smaller ones do not.  If it does, pop the printer setup disk in and it should give you setup instructions.  Make sure you choose to Direct Connect wirelessly when you get to the part where you can choose how to connect.
