    Settings to allow ethernet connection from printer to Linksys router to work

    I am trying to connect a new Samsung CLX-3160FN all-in-one color laser
    printer into my home network.

    I have a Linksys WRT54GS router which is hard wired via ethernet cable to
    (1) a desktop computer and (2) the new Samsung CLX-3160FN. Also, two
    notebook computers use this network.

    The Linksys router is set for DHCP. The samsung can be set to (1) DHCP or
    (2) static IP address. Presently, it is set to "DHCP".

    I can ping the IP address but cannot get a connection to work correctly.

    What settings does one need to include in the Linksys router settings and
    also the printer settings to allow the new printer hardwired to the router
    to work on the network properly?

    If it matters, I am using Zone Alarm with Antivirus. I disabled it at some
    points of testing and the printer failed to network properly then, also.

    Some information from the Linksys WRT54GS router below. Supplementary
    information only.

    Meaning what? You can't print to it from a computer on the LAN? Have
    you installed it in Windows? Have you shared it in Windows?

    You shouldn't have to do anything on the router given what you've said.

    Likewise, shouldn't have to do anything in ZA.
