It makes me think of one router - Linksys? - which would not
communicate with any system which it had not supplied with a DHCP
address. It doesn't sound from your previous post as though this is
the behaviour however.
Can you watch the activity lights while pinging? It would be
interesting to know whether the ping is not being sent, or is being
sent and not replied to.
Can you (from the PC) connect to the printserver and see anything
about its clients, in the status pages? Ideally you would be able to
use arp -a, but that isn't likely to be provided.
It would be interesting to use arp -a at a * prompt on the RPC
immediately after pinging the address of the printserver.
I do vaguely remember some issues with multiple network cards and
EtherX, but I can't remember the details.
