It sounds like you don't have a DHCP Server anywhere on the wireless
network. If you only have your laptop (with wireless) and a printer
attached to a WUSB45gr are going to have problems. You will either need
to set up your laptop to be wireless router/DHCP server or invest in a
wireless router. Hope this helps.
You could also go here <http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=uk&dlc=en&product=3560280&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_UKEN> download the PDF 'Basic Guide' and read the relevant
entry under network setup, there's one for 'router-less' wi-fi connection
to a laptop from this printer.
hope this helps too
