New router - printerconnects with dhcp but cannot be "found" or pinged

We are temporarily staying at a friend's house during a remodel.  We connected our two laptops (W7 & W8), desktop (W7) and hp OJP 8600 wireless printer to a Cisco E3000.  All are visilble in the DHCP listing from the router.  None of the computers can ping the printer at the ip address assigned by DHCP and visible on the printer setup info.

C:\Windows\system32>ping 192.168.1.104

Pinging 192.168.1.104 with 32 bytes of data:

try this

command prompt

arp -a
arp -d  192.168.1.107
arp -a

side note:
a printer should not be assigned by dhcp it should be a static ip address.

If you must make it dhcp at least make it a dhcp reservation using the mac address of the printer.

I could never get everything working.  We have now moved to another friends house and connected to their network and everything connected immediately  and the homegroup worked as well.

There must have been something about the Cisco router's settings that blocked connectivity.

Anyway, we are back in business in our new digs for the next 3 weeks. Hopefully our remodel will be done by then.

Thanks for trying to help.
