So, I just purchased a HP Deskjet 6980 with wireless printing! I can get it to print if it is connected to the router with an ethernet cable. This is how it looks like:

wireless MacBook --> router <-- printer (connected with ethernet cable).
This set up works fine.


Here's the problem, once I unplug the ethernet cable, it connects wirelessly to my router, exactly what it should do. So now it looks something like this:

wireless MacBook --> router <-- wireless printer
However, this set up doesn't work!

I get "Processing Job" with the status bar never moving.

I'm using a Belkin 54g router.

I just want some input on how to fix this.
