If the AP you are connecting to appears on the list in you click on it,
chhose the AP security being used (WEP, WPA, etc) and a window opens up

click Connect in the GUI.

Printers use cups. Use system-config-printer and configure it or
go to the web interface: localhost:631 and configure the printer.
