Ask the Wi-Fi Guru, Episode XXVI: 2G, 3G, 4G, Wireless Printing

"Q: My Linksys WRT600N flashed with v24 DD-WRT does not work wirelessly with HP7410 all-in-one printer. The printer is able to make a connection, but I cannot ping the printer nor get other programs to recognize it. PC wired and laptop wireless work well. I have tried this with and without wireless security.

Printer IP 192.168.10.120
Router IP 192.168.10.1
DHCP begins at 192.168.10.100 - 192.168.10.249

"There must be a DD-WRT setup that I have not figured out, but I have not found this info on DD-WRT forum or others. -- Tom

"A: On the face of it, this doesn't sound like a problem related directly to DD-WRT. After all, this is a quite common setup and falls right into the wheelhouse of any wireless router regardless of firmware in use. There must be something else going on."
