Help with wireless set up (C4580)

I have a C4580 all-in-one printer that has been plugged into a desktop, and working wirelessly with my other laptops without any problems. This past week we got a new router, and a wireless NIC for the desktop. I first tried to set up the printer through one of the laptops, but even when the USB was plugged in, it couldn't find the printer. I then tried to set up the printer through the desktop. With the USB plugged in, it sees it fine. However, when I try to set up the wireless, I get the following message: "Your printer has limited connectivity. Your printer is using IP address, which is not compatible with the IP address of the PC. Power off your printer and then power on and wait 60 sec for the printer to acquire an IP address. Then click Retry." I followed the instructions a few times and keep getting the same message. I've put in my password, and am not sure what else to do. I need this printer set up wirelessly for all PCs in the house.

Nevermind. I told it to ignore the error and continue and it worked.
