Ok, so you have a router which means you are on an internal network using NAT.  You should be able to either configure the printer with a static IP or allow it to pick up one from the router.  If you choose to setup the static IP just make sure it is in the same subnet and address range as the router is distributing if not you will have problems connecting to it.  You should then be able to goto add printer wizard and select local printer, don't use plug and play to detect printer.  Then choose a TCP/IP printer port and simply type in the IP address of the printer, then i think it asks you to choose a name for the printer and you can enter whatever works for you and then it will probably prompt you for a driver.  You can at this point use the disk that came with the printer or download it from the Internet and point to the directory where it is installed.  And you should now have a working printer.  

Also if you want to you can install the jet direct software on your PC and it will detect the jetdirect box on the network and let you configure it from there...meaning giving it an IP or other settings.
