    I set up a WiFi network with a Time Capsule the other day but I wasn't quite sure how to get the printer connected to it all.

    The printer is WiFi enabled -- it's a HP J6480 printer; so I can just go through the prompts and it scans for WiFi networks, I select the one set up on the Time Capsule and enter the password.

    At this point I would assume that it is connected to the network but that there is probably something else I need to do to set it up on my MacBook Pro that's connecting wirelessly to the Time Capsule.

    Just add it to the wifi network like you said. Then on your MBP open System Preferences and click the Print & Scan panel and click the plus at the bottom left to add the printer. You may be prompted to download drivers from Apple.
