Don't know if you fixed this yet.
I am having a similar problem. I had yours at first and figured that part out. I was using WEP encryption and instead of entering one of the 4 keys for that router, I was using the passphrase. Once I figured that out, It would work for a few minutes then stop. It at least saw the connection.
I have no mac addresses enabled, basic WEP, no port forwarding, and everything pretty much default set. I still cannot get this thing to work from my laptop. I have to now see if upgrading the firmware on the network card and/or resetting the router will remedy this. 2hrs with Epson to get it narrowed down to the router because it scans and prints fine from the PC (ethernet plugged into the router) then wireless to the printer and back. I just can't get the laptop to send/receive to that printer.
Ohh, one more thing. I had the same issue with my newer laptop with integrated wireless on Win 7. The old one has XP with a Linksys wireless notebook adapter.
WRT54g has newest firmware.

I updated the firmware on the router and the PC card on the XP laptop. I knew the card was not the issue since the Win 7 laptop had the same issue. Same problem. It would print a test page, but after that it would hang up and fail to print.
I should mention I tried this without security, with WEP and WPA to no avail.
Returned the Epson to Officemax. Reluctantly took home new replacement Workforce. Same issue. Since I had the same problem, I had to eliminate the other variable of perhaps a bad router. I grabbed another working WRT54gl that runs an HP 8500 all in one on the neighbor's network without issue. Updated his firmware on that (because he needed it) and uninstalled everything on all pcs. Reinstalled everything on all pcs. Same issue. 7 hrs in and frustrated as can be, we returned the Epson and bought an HP 6500. Installed it without a hitch and now have a quieter printer that works.
I wish I could say that Epson was the problem for sure, but if that was the case, I suppose I would not have been here on the forum. I'll let you be the judge.
Good luck to all.

I found this thread after the Linksys customer support representative told me the router I needed assistance with was no longer under warrantee and they wanted to charge $39.99 to solve the issue. Well I saved the money and hope my experience can help others.

YOU'RE A GENIUS! Yours is the ONLY post I was able to find anywhere that works for my Verizon FIOS Actiontec mi424wr router and the Epson Workforce 635!
Thank you SO much!
