Depending on the printer it might be possible to specify an IP address on its console.

Some network printers may need software on the client PC if printing isn't done via a print server with the relevant setup. I have vague memories of installing something on this machine to facilitate printing with my network enabled printer without having my server on.

What make and model is the printer?

If other wired PCs on the network can see it then looking at the wireless adapter and firewall options might give some clues.

If the laptop has an RJ45 Ethernet port try connecting to the network via a cable and searching for the printer.
