First of all, are you running Windows Vista, or Windows 7?

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.
