Having printer problems after changing routers.

We just hooked up DSL in our office through a DSL modem/router. But now, our network printer is not working properly. We used to have a "TEAM Internet" box for dial up and the printer worked fine when that was hooked up. I'm assuming I need to find the new IP address for that printer, but I don't know how to get that.

Please advise.

Oh, and our Linux is just the server. The remaining computers on the network are Windows XP

What printer have you got? Most networked printers that I've seen have the ability to print out a setup page telling you what setting the printer is using. Exactly how that's done depends on what printer you have, but it will be in the printer's doc set.

I had a similar problem a few weeks ago converting from ISDN to DSL.  Turns out that the DLINK DSL box was serving out IP addresses using DHCP.  The problem was that my laser printer had a fixed IP, and the DHCP server duplicated it's address for another machine - result : confusion and a non working printer.  As jlevie says - Need more data about the printer!

access the router see what the ip  is for the printer, and change it to match the network

eg: 192.168.1.?
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
