Thank you very much for your effort in getting my printer up and running

One more before the final.

How do I increase the wifi power from the printer -HP C4380-.
Even in the same room as the router, the power is a bit weak

Good to know that finally you got your printer all setup okay darkhorse.

If your router has an external antenna, you may replace them with High-gain Antenna. Another option is adding Wi-Fi Extender/Repeater. You may read the technical specs of the device.

You entered the detail on the router by connecting to the router's homepage?

From the screenshot of your router it's Static DHCP, for your printer to obtain ip automatically the router must be set to dynamic DHCP. Is there an option for this?

All wireless devices can be set to obtain ip from your router which you setup a wireless network from. Depending on the type of wireless network you have setup (eg WPA, WEP etc), the devices may or may not be able to connect depending on their capabilities to connect to those types.
