Okay, I've had a look at the manual - it's from page 22 onwards. Here are some things to bear in mind while setting it up:

Unlike the procedure for installing a network printer that is hosted by another client - in which the driver is installed locally automatically - you need to install the printer on each client in turn. Use the printer manufacturer's recommended method for this.

Remember that firewalls may block required communications and/or ask for a response from the user. If you can have all clients switched on and watched by either you or some volunteers, that makes it easier.

There's a manual approach on page 26 that you might be better off using.There's also an option to use the router's config interface.

Make sure that you can access the interface anyway; because if you can't, the wizard won't be able to, either.

click here for the manual if you don't already have it. Read it thoroughly.
