How about providing more info? Network settings would be a start. –  Fergus Nov 11 '11 at 23:16
    
Is the printer working otherwise? Is it reachable from other machines? How did you determine the printer's IP address? –  David Schwartz Nov 11 '11 at 23:27

Check your gateway. Make sure it is the same for both your printer and your computer. –  Randolf Richardson Nov 12 '11 at 0:58
