Windows Vista

printer use thru wireless router/modem

First off, I'm new....bare with me. No help from phone company DSL tech support.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1721. OS is Vista Ultimate Build 6, Wireless 1550 Draft 802.11n WLAN mini card. DSL wireless modem is Zy-xel PK5001Z-phone and internet router w 4 ethernet ports. One desk top and one laptop and one Brothers MFC 5490CN 4in1 printer. Brothers says the printer does not have wireless capability.
The original modem crashed and was replaced with this new one. The printer worked wirelessly with the old modem.
How can I manually connect the laptop to the printer port on the modem? Network search doesn't see the printer on the modem. I think that if I can isolate the IP address for the printer I can connect it to the laptop wirelessly. Looking for help on how to do that.

Confused, Rocketdesigner
