What is this 'router/access point' channel conflict that you speak of?
Conflicting channels have no bearing on whether or not you can connect.
the network status report generated at the completion of the set states at the conclusion of the report that this is the case and makes reference to having problems with printing or scanning that I should " improve my wireless network enviroment"?
The report tells you that there is a "channel conflict"?
I am assuming that you are trying to connect the printer to the router wireless, is this correct?
Is the printer a new install?
Or was it working at one time?
You stated that the printer is connected to the router; where do you get this information from?
On the printer report, does it indicate the Printer's IP address?
I do not understand what you just said.
Are you telling me that you are manually entering an IP address into the printer?
Which IP address, subnet, & gateway are you using?
What is the IP Address and SUBNEt mask?
Ok thank you

request timed out..
That tells us that the printer is not connected wirelessly.
What is the brand and model of the wireless router?
