Syntax
      CON2PRT /f
      CON2PRT /c \\PrintServer\PrintShare
      CON2PRT /cd \\PrintServer\PrintShare

Key
       /f  - remove all network printer connections
       /c  - connect to \\PrintServer\PrintShare
       /cd - connect to and set PrintShare as the default printer      

What you can do is find out IP of the printer, and then connect via Add Printet and create New Port select TCPIP port and put in IP.
