Have you used Windows' built in feature that allows you to search for a printer on a wireless network? It can be found in 'My Network Places'.

WindowsME does not support IP printing within the OS.  What kind of printer is this?  HP gives you the JetAdmin software which will configure your OS and add a "Jet Direct Port"

I'm sure if your printer (if another brand) supports IP Printing that the manufacturer offers IP support drivers.

Start there.

Good Luck

I would check the OKIDATA website for drivers that support IP Printing for this printer.

How are you pinging the printer?  Does it have a built in network card ?

if you can browse and see the printer, rightclick and choose connect...

also, some router require a specific set of drivers (or port) to be able to print. check with the user manual for this wireless router if a cpecial driver is required.
