Hi, Based on your post/description, I will assume that your printer is connected to your network by either by WiFi or Ethernet and not by USB to a particular PC. If it is USB connected to a PC, then it should still work since it is not physically connected to the router. Since your "Internet radio" was just recently upgraded, it is possible that the networking configurations have been changed. Having said that, it is perhaps required that you likewise changed the networking configuration of the C6180 to conform with the new settings. Pls post back with information on: 1. How is the C6180 connected; by LAN to your router or by WiFi? 2. What is your new/current networking configurations (IP add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS, Network/Workgroup name)? 3. Do you still have the original CD installer/driver, the user's manual and the quick installation guide? 4. Do you still have the original USB cable that came with the printer? Alternately, you can checkout the installation guide at the HP website ( or go through the installation procedure again using the CD that came with the printer (of course you must initially uninstall the HP C6180). Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back with additional information/details so we can figure things out. Good luck and kind regards.

Hey guys could i use my router as a radio to pull the internet signal from a next router without using any cable

With the Linksys router it is not possible. You will need to connect the cable between the two routers. Linksys router will not pick up the wireless signal from the other wireless router.
May be it will work If you upgrade the DD-WRT Firmware. Not sure but it may. consult with the DD-WRT expert before upgrading the firmware.

Try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router.
On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.

Wireless light not on, no wireless signat to computer

Try the following steps:-
1)Connect the computer using an ethernet cable and check the internet connectivity and then go into the router's setting's page and change the wi-fi setting's on the router by changing the channel and security and also enable the wireless router radio from the setting's itself.
2)If it did not work then Upgrade the firmware(drivers) on the router to the latest one available.
3)Even after upgrading the firmware the light status remains the same then restore the router to its default setting's i.e re-set the router and then re-configure it from the beginning.

HP C8180 has built in wireless adapter and Ethernet according the Website at HP.

If this is connecting to the network wirelessly, check to see that it is connected to the Network, is your router using secure passwords for a connection to the network,
Your printer will need these passwords just as your computers would
If you connect the printer with a Lan Cable, it will be more reliable, and shouldn’t need a password to be on the network. And makes life a little easier...

Your internet provider has nothing to do with your Printer not printing; this is an Internal Network Problem. The settings or your network has changed.

The Printer should have a static IP address

Here is a link to a tip I put together about this subject,

Can't print using HP C6180 Printer via DG834G router

More information is needed to diagnose this issue:

- What form of wireless security setup do you have (WEP, WPA-PSK, etc)?

-have you gone through the steps (, Option B for the wireless setup) to be sure your printer matches these settings? Pay special attention to the section where it says to use the FIRST key in a multi-key WEP setup, and be sure the laptop is also using that key; WEP could be the issue if the laptop and printer are using different keys to connect.

-Did you give the printer a static IP address to request, or are you just letting it grab one dynamically?

-Have you tried installing the printer as wired rather than wireless, then printing from the laptop wirelessly?
