Gateway Discovers Wireless Printer, IP Address Not Getting Assigned

Epson nx420 printer is connected to wireless network.  The Gateway has the mac address and the XFi app shows an assigned IP address for the printer.  However, printer report shows "PASS" results and network configured except that the IP address is not getting assigned.  And of course, we cannot print over the network.  Printer error message:  "A router/access point channel conflict has been detected"..."improve your wireless network environmnet".  Well, that ain't it...printer signal strength detected at gateway is excellent.

 

The gateway shows access channel 6 automatically assigned to the 2.4GHz wireless network.  The nx420 printer is on this network, but perhaps not on this wireless channel...?

 

Please help!  Is there a way to get the gateway to play nice with the printer?

 

Thanks
