My printer is the HP Officejet 4630.
I can log into the router and ping the printer using the router ping utility.
I can certainly ping the router from my wireless devices.
I cannot ping the printer or otherwise (HP utility) seem to connect to the printer. I tried pinging from both the wireless Mac and the wired to the router Windows 7.
I guess the router is blocking the printer?
I am on the Rowlett, Texas CO OLT.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Oh, and the router utility will also ping the wireless Mac on 192.168.1.6

Login to your router. Then, click here:
Then, set "IGMP Proxy" to disabled.
Yes, this is a hidden page on the latest firmware.

I tried disabling the IGMP proxy, but that does not seem to help.

OK. It is pinging successfully.
After I took the advice of disabling the IGMP proxy, that did not solve....yet
I did a router reboot from the web menu, but that did not solve...yet
I did a power recycle reboot of router, and that solved.
I don't want to have to walk to the router to solve these problems.
