From the Wizard, select "Add a network", wireless or Bluetooth printer. Click The printer that isn't listed on the choosen network page. On the "Find a printer by name or TCP/IP address" page, choose "how to find the printer" that you want to use. Click "Next" to finish.
In order to ensure that the printers on the network are being displayed, check if the network is working correctly. If so, then check that all computers on the network are in the same workgroup. Contact the system administrator if you do not know the name or network address of the printer.
