How to list network printer(s) under XP workgroup name?

Hi

1.
I bought brother network printer HL-2270DW two days ago. It has the following protocals:

Web Based Management
(Web Server)
SNMP Advanced Setting
LPD
Raw Port
IPP Advanced Setting
Web Services Advanced Setting
POP3/SMTP Advanced Setting
FTP
TFTP
mDNS Advanced Setting
LLMNR
LLTD

2.
My goal is to have this printer to be listed TOGETHER WITH MY computers on under my workgroup name instead of having this printer listed ( shared ) under print server ( any windows pc can be share the printer)

I can ping, the printer i can print no problem to it.
The printer is member of the same workgroup, the same subnet as my xp pcs.

This is NetBIOS configuration options:
-----------------------------------------------
Configure NetBIOS (Wireless)
NETBIOS/IP Enable Disable
Computer Name printer-brother
WINS Server Method
Primary WINS Server IP Address
Secondary WINS Server IP Address
----------------------------------------------

This is TCP/IP configuration options:
----------------------------------------------
Configure TCP/IP (Wireless)
TCP/IP Enable
IP Address 192.168.8.220
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway 192.168.8.1
Boot Method

Enable APIPA -> YES
Advanced settings
Configure IPv6
Configure IPv4 Filter
---------------------------------------------

Should i disable TCP/IP and leave NETBIOS/IP enabled?
I am going NUTS here.

4.
Why the printer doesn't show/list in my Network Places Win XP Home, under my WORKGROUP name, together with my other XP computers on the LAN ? Like a stand alone Printer, rather than shared Printer under Workstation?

5.
I even set up SAMBA WINS server to see if that helps to have the Printer display under my Workgroup and not under my PC( printer server). Still without success. I tried to set up under SAMBA server print server still only displays under the Ubuntu PC. I want to see it as stand alone machine not under other pcs (print servers)

The printer has prints server built in. I should see him the same as other PC Samba or Windows XP.

Can you give me some advice?

Thanks for you help here
