It is very likely because the printer is using the same IP address as one of the pc's. If you manually entered an IP to the printer, then you should check to see none of the pcs is using the same IP.
Try restarting all the pcs after the printer gets connected.

Set up a Wireless printer on your Router for use with a wired PC


First install the Wireless printer driver using the Wizard by connecting either the Ethernet cable to the router during the install process when asked this will set up your wireless laptop with the correct printer port based on the Wireless Node Name it will also use the printers inbuilt MAC address. This is standard install and will work for all your Wireless PC's however if you have a Wired (ethernet) PC connected to your Router this process will not work a wireless port will not work with a wired computer.

Follow my 3 steps below to set up standard IP ports for Wired PC's also connected to your Router.

STEP 1: Find your MAC address for the wireless printer (all types of Network Cards will have one so this is no different) this will either be found under the LCD control panel or may even be printer on the bottom of the printer or Print server if it is seperate set this MAC address with an IP address as a reservation in your admin panel of your router 192.168.0.10 in this example.

You can normally enter your Router this using 192.168.0.1 typed in your browser (not the search engine) as all routers are different check here for your make and model http://www.routerpasswords.com if you can't find the MAC address try using ipconfig /all from them command prompt it will be the physical address aka the MAC address

STEP 2:
Install the Printer as a USB printer port by connecting the USB cable to the PC you want the wired printer driver installed on when finished go to the printer driver properties for the driver you have just added, click the port tab and click add standard IP port as shown below, then disconnect the USB lead this is only required to make sure the correct inf file is used on the driver install and connect your Ethernet cable from you computers NIC to a spare RJ45 socket on the Router.

STEP 3: To check that the Printer has the correct IP address then test using the tracert OR ping command for the IP address that you have reserved on your router, this is a necessary step otherwise when the lease expires it may take another IP address and your Printer driver will not work unless your printer has the reserved address, it will throw a printer error.

c:ping 192.168.0.10

(this example shows a Standard TCP/IP Port for a Brother DCP-340CW)

Also check in your routers admin panel to see if the Wireless Printer is set up with the correct IP and MAC address, if you still can't find it eliminate your known MAC addresses from all your network cards the one left will be your Printer Server NIC in your Wireless Printer.

If you have setup the incorrect IP and or MAC address you will get this window when you try to add the TCP/IP port

That's it try a test print and you will see it burst into life.... Happy Printing

If I understand correctly you using MAC #s with your netgear router, you must find the mac address for that printer

1. if are given the printer a ip address type the ip address at the top of your web browser 192.167.0.0 example, they must display the mac address some where on the internal web page of the printer
2. Sometimes it is in the menu section of print itself under network connections.
3. added the MAC # under in internal web page of the netgear router

Can not install


Chapter 3 - Configuration
This section will show you how to configure your new D-Link wireless print server using the web-based configuration
utility.
Web-based Configuration Utility
The IP address of your print server will be automatically assigned by your router.
To access the print server’s web-based configuration interface:
Windows® XP users:
Double-click on the My Network Places icon on your desktop. Your print server will be displayed as “DPR-1260:
dlinkps-xxxxxx” (where xxxxxx is the last 6 characters of your print server’s MAC address). If you do not see the print
server or have UPnP enabled, please refer to page 13.
Windows® 2000 users:
You will need to write down the MAC address located on the bottom of the print server (E.G. 00-54-23-45-f5-b6). Open
a web browser and enter the following:
http://dlinkps-XXXXXX
XXXXXX = the last six characters of your MAC address.
Note: Some printer software features may not work
while connected to the print server such as ink level display.

This will prove the print server is working. If you can not access the web interface then it may not be getting an address from the router

Had the same issue. Change the router wireless security settings from TKIP to AES algorithms. This did the trick for me.

Wireless printer connection with at&t u-verse


OK I FINALLY figured out how to fix this. You need to program your router to allow your printer to connect to it. Do this by going to your 2Wire router setting homepage by entering http://192.168.1.254 in your address bar. Now sross to the bottom and click wireless. Go down to MAC Filtering and click Edit Blocked/Allowed Device List. You need your printers MAC address now. You can get this by turning your printer on and press the button that has a check mark on it. It will print out a report page. Your MAC address should be called the hardware address and should be 12 digits. Now go back to your computer and enter this address in the form xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx where it says MAC address and click add to list. You might need to enter your password now mich should be on a sticker on the bottom of your router. Voila! Now make sure you have uninstalled the HP software from your previous install attempts if you have any, and turn off your firewall. (Control panel--security---turn off firewall) Now use the provided HP install disk and follow the instructions. Click install a wireless printer. It will not find it now but thats okay. When it asks what type of connection you want to have click wireless. Now select the basic setup where you connect an ethernet cable to your printer and router. Now connect the printer and router with the ethernet cable. Now click refresh. It should find it now. You'll need to select your network name and enter your WPA network key (located on the bottom of the router if you didnt change it). It should find it now!! Remember to turn your firewall back on! Happy printing!!

Wireless


This is not a solution this is diagnosis.

First it is clear your wireless1.gif communicationis failing.

Can you attach with a wire such as an ethernet cable to the router (not bypassing the router directly to the ISP's equipment)?

If yes was that tested and did it work?

If not you may have a configuration issue with you ISP on the WAN or modem2.gif side of the router. Or you may have the gateway address set incorrectly. Or you may be missing DNS addresses to access sites by name.

I will need the ISP's name or support web site2.gif address to assist with the above

If the above works on to the wireless connection.

Does the wireless router1.gif and wireless adapter1.gif (built-in or add-on) share a common communication band (a, b, g or n)? if not that is an issue.

When attempting to connect can you see your routers name?
Was the name changed from the default to assure it is not your neighbor's router?

Did you apply1.gif encryption (WEP or WPA) to either the router or the wireless adapter and not to the other device?

Do you have MAC Filtering turned on in the router and failed to add the MAC address of the wireless adapter?

If statically addressed do the wireless adapters have valid unique addresses in the router's subnet? A subnet mask that matches the router's? The router's address as the default gateway? One or more valid DNS addresses?

If dynamically addressed does the DHCP server provide all of the above? If not (possibly DNS) is it properly configured into the wireless adapter.

Please answer the above in a response and I will attempt to provide some additional steps to determine the issue and generate a solution.
