Upgrade the routers firmware to 2.0.03 build 9.  Hard reset the router after and reconfigure it manually back to your settings and try again.

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
Special Hint: There is a 97.2% (and increasing) chance the information you seek is in the User Guide/Manual or on your printers HP Support Page. Remember, Google is your friend.

i did the upgrade of the firware earlier... when you say hard reset, do you mean pressing the tiny button in the tiny hole at the back?

But your first post has an older firmware revision.  Yes, after all firmware update on routers you must hard reset the router by pressing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds and release.  Power cycle the router and reconfigure it manually back to your settings.
