Does your computer recognize the printer as in you can see it connected on your screen? Try clearing the print que or restarting your printer and doing a manual print test page directly from the printer buttons.

Can i connect Hp F380 all in one printer to Linksys wrt54g, and i am using macbook, help


From looking at the printer information and the router information, you will probably need additional equipment to make this work.
The printer connects to computers using a USB cable. It does not have a network connection, either wired or wireless built in.
That means you need a print server to connect your printer to the network. Some routers have a print server built in, but the WRT54G isn't one of them.
The print server will have some USB ports to connect the printer to, and connect to the router with a cable, or wirelessly.
HP shows this option: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01428401&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&site=null&key=null&product=1128296
If you can find that one, it might work the best. Many print servers have a hard time with all-in-one devices. They are usually able to print just fine, but scanning is troublesome. Make sure to review information about any print server you get, or router with built in print server to make sure it does everything you need.
Considering the price of a print server, it might be a better option to get a new printer that has built in network support. They are more likely to work easily and well. But watch carefully to make sure it can do everything you need (print, scan etc) over the network.

Does your network have a dedicated computer server and the printer is attached to this server or is the printer attached to a dedicated print server device?
OR
Does a computer on your network shares its printer with other computers on your network?
There is insufficient information on how you configured your printer setup for me to give you a proper answer to your problem.
