Hey BC! Long time no see, huh?

Well, after several months of problem free operation (thank the gods), my luck finally ran out and I've discovered a problem in my network. I went to print a document in word today, and the printer came up listed as "Server Offline". My computer is on a wireless network that links back to a router we lease from our ISP. The printer is then connected to a system that is hard wired to the router. The router is recent, however. We were experiencing problems with our previous router (when I could still print wirelessly), so we contacted the ISP and requested a new one. Problem solved. Now, it seems I can't access the printer, or the other computer for that matter. I've checked the printer settings on the hardwired system and double checked that the printer is enabled for sharing, so I have reason to believe that my issues lie within the router's configuration settings.

Anybody have any ideas? I have no idea how to proceed from this point. Thanks. ~Jnk1296

UPDATE: Maybe I'm wrong. I can ping my system from the hard wired system, but I can't ping the hardwired system from my system. Strange...
Second Update: Norton Antivirus was causing interference with network computer communications. Quick firewall change fixed the ping issue...
