My own printer is a [censored] to setup...unless you unhide the SSID being broadcast from the router. Strange that. Hidden, the printer can't see it, even if you tell it the specific one to look for. Once unhidden, it sees it, configures, then you hide it again, but the printer 'sees' it thereafter.
I also recommend the previous poster's suggestion for the static IP for the printer, and perhaps tweak the DHCP IP range on the router to prevent said IP being allowed. For example:
xxx.xxx.xxx.1 - router (default gateway)
xxx.xxx.xxx.2 - PC
xxx.xxx.xxx.3 - printer
xxx.xxx.xxx.4 to xxx.xxx.xxx.254 - in router's DCHP range (assuming you want or need DHCP).
Edit: female dogs not allowed? Hmm.
