my modem sees my wireless printer but none of the devices I have connected on the network see it.

How have you added it to the computer(s)?

I just added a wired LaserJet 5P; it does not have an Ethernet port, but it is networked. My router (it is separate from the modem) does not see it:


No printer.


When I first opened "Devices and Printers", there was no LaserJet, or any other printer but the virtual "Fax" and "Micrsoft XPS Document Writer". So I clicked on the "Add a printer" link:

Add a printer.


From there I don't know the right path for your case. In my case, I chose "Add a local printer", followed by "Create a new port".
