It sounds like you have some serious issues going on here aside from the printer.

First, get your LAN and internet working properly, then you can share your printer.

Describe your setup


internet >> router >> clients

Are your clients getting their TCP/IP settings from DHCP, or are you assigning them statically?

Ok, now that you have your LAN and internet working, click on my name above and read my "how-to" guide on adding a network printer.

It details how to share a printer across the network when that printer is directly attached to a PC.
