Can you start out by going to administration > printing and check too see if your printer is in there, if not try adding it.

also issue lsusb in the terminal too see if it shows up.

Hmmm, I don't know if I can help you on this hopefully someone else will come along. Are you sure your wifi is up and running?

ifconfig and check wlan0. If I find some answers I'll post. Good luck.
