Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a simply home network using a Medion laptop with draft n wireless LAN
capability. I use this with a Linksys WAG160n router and this part of the
network works perfectly.
A few months ago I bought an Epson SX600FW wireless printer to use with the
network. I set the printer up ok - and was able to print wirelessly to it
without problem. A short time later, however, I found that the printer had
'vanished' from the network and I was unable to print to it. The only way I
could get it back was by re-booting the router - but once again, within a
matter of hours, the printer went AWOL again.
I first spoke to Epson tech support but they claimed it must be a router
I have now had three on-line chats with Linksys tech support about the
problem. The first two times my firmware was out of date by a single version
and the they merely told me to update to the latest firmware and try it out.
Neither of these solutions worked.
During the latest chat with Linksys, a couple of days ago, they suggested
creating a static ip address for the printer. I did this, following their
instructions, but once again, within a matter of hours, the printer had
vanished from the network and I was unable to print to it.
Pinging the printer from both the laptop and the router, following the loss
of connection, fails.
This problem is driving me nuts!
Anyone any ideas to help me with this?
Put the printer on default settings and configure wireless settings on it again.

do you have a Wireless Router + Broadband modem?
This is like a base station to which your remote wireless node communicates (to get connected to your home network and internet.
something like this http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=187337 for an ADSL connection.
If you are on cable, you can either get a Router similar to the one above (but for cable) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01
or if your Cable modem has LAN ports you may just be able to use an "Access Point" to add Wireless capabilities. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1126536803676&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0367639789B22
