If you think you may have an incorrect ip address, that probably means you changed it by setting a static address. Most systems (with the exception of business systems using domains), use auto ip addressing. Logging on to most wifi hotspots and most home wireless routers requires auto ip addressing. To set yours to auto (this is with XP, I think Vista and Windows 7 is similiar, you just find the controls in slightly different places) go to Control Panel, then to network connections, then right click on the 1394 connection and select properties. In the new pop-up box, if it is not already selected, select tcp/ip and then click properties. (You can also double click the tcp/ip item). In the new pop-up box, make sure both "obtain ip address automatically" and "obtain dns server automatically" are both selected by using the radio buttons. Click Ok on both pop-up boxes to close. While you're in the area, the control panel should still be open. Double click "internet options." Then click on the connections tab, and towards the bottom, click on the lan button. On the new pop-up box, uncheck automatically detect settings. This usually makes you wired connection faster.
To change your network IP address in Windows XP, Vista, or 7:
1. Press the Windows Key and R
2. Type command and press Enter. This loads your DOS prompt
3. Type ipconfig /release then press Enter. This disables your internet connection
4. Go to your desktop, and right-click on something called Network Place or My Network Places (If you're using Windows Vista or 7, look for the Network and Sharing Center through Control Panel)
5. Click Properties. You should now see something called Local Area Connection or something similar
6. Right-click on your connection (titled Local Area Connection if you're using an ethernet cable or Wireless Network Connection if you're on WiFi) and click Properties
7. Under the General tab, double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
8. A new window appears. On its own General tab, click the box beside Use the following IP address
9. Type in ones until you fill the box up (it should read 22.214.171.124)
10. Press Tab. You'll notice the Subnet Mask section automatically fill sup with numbers
11. Click OK
12. Click OK to bring you back to the "Local Area Connection" screen
13. Right-click Local Area Connection and Click on Properties again
14. Again, under the General tab, double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
15. Select Obtain an IP address automatically
16. Click OK
17. Click OK
18. Go back to your DOS prompt, type "ipconfig /renew" and press Enter. This restores your internet connection.
By now, the network should've assigned a new IP address to your computer automatically.
Go to Control Panel - Network Connections, right click on the LAN or the wireless card that you want to change the IP address, then click on Properties. Then scroll down the list of "This connection uses" to Internet Connections (TCP/IP) then click on Properties. You can now change to a fix IP address.

Not sure if you've done this already or not, but I would suggest installing the printer manually as a local printer, and create a TCP/IP port that points at the IP of the Printer. Rudimentary way to go, but should help.
