It seems to me that Ubuntu favours the ethernet connection when resolving the address. This means that when you try to reach 10.23.161.x, you get the 'outside' connection; your traffic is blocked by 10.23.161.x's router firewall. If you can use the printer's internal (private) address through the wireless network, you could try the solution from ...

If you have Network Manager installed, you will find the process ...
