You have a document in queue thats holding up your printing. Clear that out if you know how.
Make sure you have no paper jams and its feeding paper correctly.
Are you connected with a usb cable with your printer?

Most printers are connected to the back of the desktop cpu.
I have never heard of a printer connected to the modem before.
The modem is how you connect to the outside world.
