Unhappy Printer problem

I'm having a problem with my printer. Both laptops in the house read the printer as "offline" (they're connected wirelessly), except the printer is not offline. It's on, I printed a test page from it and it showed no errors. I tried unplugging it then restarting my moms computer, still says offline. Not exactly sure what the error is at this point, so not sure how to fix it.
Thanks in advance.

Default Re: Printer problem

Do you have it shared in printer settings? What printer do you have?

On some, there is a wireless button, that has to glow to be wirelessly enabled.
