Can't connect to printer

Just installed this MR60 mesh router and everything is ok except now my computer can't find my network printer. How to fix?

Re: Can't connect to printer

Is the printer online? 

Is the computer setup for a private connection and not public (through windows)?

Re: Can't connect to printer

My network connection was private. Don't know how to tell if printer was online; but I switched back to my old router, and the printer was discovered and added via W10. So why am I having problems with the MR60 router where I can't even "discover" the printer?

The printer is what connects to the router, not the othe way around. I'd contact the printer manufacturer
