Re: printer to router
If you printer has a Ethernet cable, connect it to your router, and windows should be able to dicover it. If your printer does not have an Ethernet cable, but a USB cable, then some routers will be able to connect to it.
Your printer's instruction manual may help!

Setting up wireless printers can be such a hassle!
The quickest solution is to let the router sync the mac address itself, don't worry about the details of it all. Easiest way is to start wired, before you go wireless.
When setting up the printer to work with that wireless router, hook your printer up directly to the router/computer the router is connected to. This will allow for the printer/router to recognize each other and establish a connection. Then, when you use a wireless connection (wireless on laptop/ on printer also), they will recognize each other and you'll be able to connect.
This is much less of a hassle than trying to set up wirelessly.
Best of luck!
I think you may need to reset your router and let your printer to try to find your router again. But keep a note of all the settings on your router so you don't lose them. Any chances that your printer can be trying to connect to other wireless device other than your router and look like connected? Restart your printer and remove the settings on your printer and try the steps as you are setting up the wireless connection between your router and your printer for the first time.
I am not too familiar with NetGear routers, but all linksys routers have mac address filters, this allows the router to only accept connections from previously stated mac addresses. I never had to do such a thing for my wireless printer, but this could be the problem. Usually wireless printers just ask for a security code (WEP/etc.) and connect on their own. Sorry i cant be anymore direct.
To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following - 1.Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – then configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100 then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0 If you have a wireless router then check the IP addresses that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the IP address in the printer accordingly. 2.Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port. 3.Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router. 4.Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties. 5.Click on Ports and click on Add Port. 6.In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port. 7.Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address. 8.Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK
Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed. Do a test print page to check the printer. You can now print from any computer on your network.
