I think people tend to make network printer setup much more difficult than it has to be. Regardless of the brand, the setup is almost always the same.
1. Set the IP address on the printer to something outside of your DHCP range.
2. Make sure your computer can ping the address you set.
3. Run the manufacturer's driver
utility and follow the steps.
I've set up countless network printers of various brands and those steps always work.
