I'm confused.  

If the printer is on the network directly, (has a network or wireless card) -- sounds like it wasn't assigned an address in DHCP-- reboot the printer to see it it gets an address.  

If the printer is hooked up to the PC, can you browse to the PC resources?  (it won't get an IP address if that's the case).
