Wired printer to wireless via router issues

  1. hello,
    I'm fairly new at networking.
    Devices:
    Oce fx300 wired printer
    laptop running windows 7
    netgear WGR614 v8 with DD-WRT Nokaid firmware

    Problem: wireless router connection only established when ethernet cable is connected to router and computer, once unplugged the connection is disabled.

    I am attempting to make this wired printer wireless through my wireless router which has been recently fitted with dd-wrt software. I have already set a static ip adress for the computer, and set the local printer connection up. My problem lies withing the router setting I am assuming since it seems like the router wont connect wireless. Please help.
