Look for a wireless isolation option in your router setup make sure it is not enabled

Re: wireless printing

You do realise that we don't have the slightest clue what sort of printer you have and/or how it connects to your network - you haven't told us.

One of the most common reasons why network printing (wired or wireless) fails when a router is replaced, is that the new router does not use the same ip network range as the old one, so the computer is trying to print to a printer that is no longer at the same address.

Now - how about providing us with some more details so that we can offer a solution rather than just guessing.
