Have you tried turning of MAC filtering in the modem by changing ACL mode to Blacklist or Disabled . If the mode is set to Black list then all devices will be able to connect except ones on the list. If set to disabled then all devices that have correct password will be able to connect..

 

If printer still can not connect check in the network IP settings on the printer that it is set to use DHCP, Dynamic or auto.

Telstra Smart Modem

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
