Hi there, welcome to the forums, could you please fill out your system specs under the user cp option at the top as it always helps,

firstly:
how is the printer connected?
does it actually print?
have you got the latest drivers?

Printers do not show up in Device Manager. Go to Devices and Printers in Start > Print server properties (on the top) > Drivers button. There you can manipulate the drivers.

WHS has it right... My printer doesn't show up in device manager either... and it works just fine. I even have it shared with the 8 computers that have access to our family LAN.
