Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies
Have network connection problems with several HP P2055dn printers. 1 is connected via a router and another via USB cable to a Windows 7 laptop. Each is part of a wrieless network with several laptops. Laptops that have been set up with the printer as a networked printer will suddenly lose the connection. After losing the connection these laptops can not find the printer again even though both the server laptop and the remote laptop reboot. Very frustrating and eventually only the server laptop can print. On another network with a XP server laptop and the HP P2055dn printer attached via USB we have not encountered any problems.

If I power off my HP printer, the DPR 1260 loses connectivity with the printer. I have to reinstall using the USB connection from the printer to the PC, then DON'T POWER DOWN THE PRINTER, & then move the USB to the server & reinstall. The printer will work as long as the power to the printer stays on.

Well, The first thing you should do is to try to test of the print server is properly connecting to the printer. Check the linksys printserver manual and look for how to print a status sheel from the print server. Once done, get the IP address of the print server. Go to your laptop and navigate to control panel/printer. See if you have the driver installed or download the Vista Drivers from Epson.com/support. During the installation, it will ask you what connection type your computer uses. cancel out of the installation or choose LPT1 as the port. Once done, go back to control panel/printers.Right click the R220 icon and navigate to properties. Select ports after that and add a new port. Select Standard TCP IP port after that. Once done, the wizard will appear. Input the IP address of the printer and finish the wizard. you should be good to go after this.

Scan over wireless network is not supported with this printer. You can try set it up and get scanner to work with usb and then change port from usb to HP standard TCP/IP for the device, but I don't think it will work.

SOURCE: Wireless printing does not work
For an effective wireless connection, the printer should be connected to one of the LAN ports of a configured wireless router. This way, every pc(mostly laptops with wireless capability) can print to the printer. You will need a wireless adapter for desktop pcs to access any resource made available wirelessly ok. Good luck
