If I understand your question Correctly

You can print to this printer when connected by wire but now when Connected by WiFi.

If that is correct the problem is in the WiFi Router as it has not been setup correctly when it was originally installed. It isn't sharing the IP Addresses of the Printer thought he WiFi connection. What you need to do here is enter the Routers Setup and either add the Printer to the Shared Connections if it was added after the original setup or if it was original allow the WiFi Network to communicate with the Wired network.

Most Netgear Routers come setup in such a way to allow the Wired & WiFi sides of the LAM to access the Internet but not each other.
