Have you made the printer share-able on the local network?

I have tried many different things but Im not sure if I have over done things.
I have tried doing the driver thing, but not sure if it worked and sharing on network, but I dont know about computers and it still says I have not printer etc. I have been trying for days now.

Check the printer manual.
Is the printer hooked to a PC or is it a standalone WiFi network connection?
You'll need to make the printer 'visible' on the local network. Usually that's done on the PC it's using as host.
Or it's done on the printer's own controls.
