Could be your Wired and Wireless networks on your router are segregated. I've seen some routers wired and wireless are segregated by default. Can you ping the IP address of the Printer?

Depends what you mean "see". Can you ping the ip address of the machines. If you are trying to mount drives does it work if you use the IP address to link the drive.

If you can actually ping the devices then the problem is not really a communication issue it must be related to microsoft share settings.

i am able to ping other computers on the network

went in the router settings and saw the ip addresses of the attached devices and then pinged them in the command prompt

but all sharing settings also seem to be fine

When people say "can't see" they typically mean CAN'T BROWSE, not listed on Explorer's window.

This is oftenly caused by more than one router (NAT device) on NAT and/or piece-meal DNS settings. The standard DNS configuration is to have all clients DNS --> pointing at the NAT device, then have the NAT device owns the DNS servers entries.

To discount whether is local software/driver problem with this one PC, temporarily swap another client with this PC (physically) if this PC on ethernet.

Please don't confuse private/public network. This has all to do with your INSIDE (private) and nothing to do with the OUTSIDE (public), unless you have a public (anyone can) access, no password WIFI.
