Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
Hey, I wonder if you can help please? I have 2 printers and they have just started to drop out the network when I connect them to the network.
The internet is connected to the network is working fine and the printers were connected and working before I had this problem. I have 2 computers hard wired, 1 wireless laptop and had 2 printers hard wired (plus the adsl modem). Tx!
Double check the IP Address info for both printers - ensuring the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway are configured correctly. Printers should never use DHCP - so this info should be configured as a static IP.
Also, try moving the connections for the printers to different ports on the router. It is possible that the router may be going bad and the printer ports are the first to show the signs.
One final tip - power cycle the router. I have used D-Link for over 8 years and have had to power cycle their routers and hubs occasionally as they sometimes lock up. This typically affects all ports - so this is probably not the cause of your issue but power cycling the device may help resolve the issue.
