The printer needs to have the IP address range within the network router. If your printer IP address is 192.168.1.113, and your network router range is 192.168.3.1 - 192.168.3.255. If the printer IP address is not in the range of the network router it will not work.

If your printer IP address is 192.168.1.113 but your router IP range is 192.168.3.1 - 192.168.3.255, in this case you will need to change your router IP range to 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.255 for this to work.
