Is this a network printer?
If it is a network printer was it configured with a static IP or is it using DHCP?
Is the router also the DHCP server for the office? If so is it configured to the same subnet as the old router?

Network printer are often configured to use a static IP because a lot of routers do not support reserved IPs and if the IP of the printer changes, nobody can print. In this case, I am just about willing to bet that the IP of the printer stayed the same but all the computers changed. This can happen if your old router was configured (for example) with an IP address of 192.168.0.1 - it would assign addresses of 192.168.0.2, 192,168.0.3 etc to the computers on the network. If the new router has an IP of 192.168.1.1, then it would hand out addresses of 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3 etc to the computers.
192.168.0.x is a different network than 192.168.1.x (with a default subnet mask of 255.255.255.0)
This will cause a problem because the computers are on a different network from the printer (since its IP has not changed). The fastest and easiest way to fix this is to change the IP address of the router to be the same as the old router. Do not change the IP address of the printer unless you really feel like going around to all your computers and reconfiguring the printer ports.

All configuration can be done with the router GUI.
Firewalls: Server Side Having a server side firewall is the typical configuration on many systems. There is only one method for doing this, whether you use telnet or ssh: map a port to be forwarded to the server in the firewall router. It is not advised that you use telnet from the Internet for security reasons; that is usually why you have a firewall.Decide which method of connectivity will be allowed, and determine what port you will use to forward to this service. If there is only one server involved, you can use port 22 for ssh or 23 for telnet and forward them straight through to the server. But if there are several servers involved and they do not have public IP addresses, you will need to pick different ports on the firewall router and let the router forward those ports to the different internal servers.

HP Photosmart C4780 and Acer Aspire fight over web-based printing!


Try hard-wiring your laptop to the router with an ethernet cable as a test and then try printing, if you do not loose connection to the internet then the problem is probably that the printing is hogging your wireless bandwidth.
If the same thing happens with loosing connection to the internet try connecting to the internet real quick through another computer that is hardwired, you want to find out if the problem is a wireless one or that affects wired computers also. You might need a driver upgrade, you also might need to upgrade the firmware of the router

Turn the modem on, and wait 60 seconds.
Turn the router on, and wait 60 seconds.
Turn the computer on, and try to access 'www.google.com'.
If it works, then the power-off/power-on cycle of the modem was the "trick" to make everything work.

I have a Dlink DI-624 wireless router when i hook it up to my modem the computer tells me there is little or no internet signal but if i just run the ethnet wire direct from modem there is no problem so i...


please call dlink tech support at 877-453-5465. just an advise on how to handle the call when you reach dlink tech support (agent); do not agree to call back after you troubleshoot with them (they'll be giving you a case id reference# and be advising you to check your pc or call "who" and call them back to continue the troubleshooting). insist to the agent that he need to resolve the problem asap (by the way, agents are not allowed to drop the call or they'll be dead-history!). and if the agent still insisted you to call back, ask for a "senior level technician" to finish the job (escalate the problem).
fyi: dlink tech support handling time to resolve a call is 15 to 18 minutes only. if you reach that 15-18 minutes (max) time the agent will think of a way for you to call back (advising you to check with your pc manufacturer, check with your ISP, call microsoft to update your software, etc... non-sense!) they need to do this in order to reach their handling time (agents need to reach 21 to 25 billable calls, and billable calls are "solution provided", "resolved", and "dropped call"). ---- believe me, i was one of them and repented.

Can't print Word Perfect documents on my Lexmark 1300


Make sure you have all the recent microsoft updates.

If it still won't print you can use OpenOffice (Free to use and download) to open your documents with and maybe they will print from there. Using Open Office may change some formatting, but you can usually fix that pretty easily.

Download Open Office

Computer can't find printer


Your using an Ethernet cable and your not on a network. You most likely need a USB cable, or connect the computer and printer together with a router. How are you accessing the internet from home?
