  ManagementScope scope = new ManagementScope("\\root\\cimv2");
 
                scope.Connect();
 
                // Select Printers from WMI Object Collections
 
                ManagementObjectSearcher searcher = new ManagementObjectSearcher("SELECT * FROM Win32_Printer");
 
                string printerName = "";

                        {

                        }
 
                        else
                        {
                        
                            // printer is not offline
 
                            Console.WriteLine("Your Plug-N-Play printer is connected.");
 
                        }
                    }
                    else
                    {

Take a look at the printer["Local"] property.
 
If it is True then is a Local printer, if not is a network printer.
