I'm trying to set up the wireless networking on my HP Deskjet printer. Should be a simple procedure:
Connect it to the router via ethernet cable
Browse to it via the web browser
However... althought the printer appears as a connected device, you cannot open its browser interface. This is odd, and used to be possible with my previous non-virgin netgear router.
Have Virgin done something to firewall settings to prevent browsing between clients on a network? All firewall settings seem conspicuous by there absence.
Does anyone know a way of unlocking the router so it behaves as standard again?

There is nothing that Virgin have done that would stop what you want to do working.
The only issues may be that the router is using a different IP range than you are used to so the IP adddress assigned to the Printer is different
When you say it shows as a connected device, where are you looking?
