    Unhappy Cannot ping/see Network Printer on Wireless Network

    Hello,

    I'm running a wireless network WPA/WPA2, broadcasting a unqiue SSID.
    I have a Dlink DIR-655 router. My Dell network printer has a fixed IP address of 192.168.0.150 which is set in the router.

    When any of the laptops connect Wirelessly, they cannot ping the printer address.
    All other networked computers are visible and can be pinged.

    When the laptops connect using a wired connection the printer becomes visible.

    I have tried both Vista and XP as the Laptop OS and the results are still the same.

    All firewalls have been disabled, even uninstalled.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks
    -Mels

    So I just happened to view the logs and noticed a Blocked MAC address. Looks like the MAC address somehow got removed from the approved list.

    What threw me off was that fact that I could access the printer using a wired connection.

    Oh well live and learn.
