adding a print server (HP Jetdirect 175X) to a wireless router (Netgear WGR614)

I just purchased an HP LaserJet 1200 that came with a Jetdirect 175X print server. I've tried to add it to my existing Netgear WGR614 wireless router with no luck. The print server is detected on the router and vice versa; the print server is also able to generate a test page through the printer. However, when I go into the router admin, the print server is not shown, even after a ipconfig/release and renew. Needless to say, the printer is not detected by my computer. Any ideas are much appreciated!

Hi

Have you connected an ethernet cable to the printer jet direct card, configured a ip address on the printer configuration?
