I'm running a small wireless network with 8 workstations and a single (Linksys BEFW11S4 wireless B router w/ 4port ethernet switch)Access Point. All WS have WinXP pro or home ed. There is a linksys wired printserver connected to the wireless router that hosts 1 printer which serves all the workstations.  Every few days the workstations lose connection with the printserver/printer and the easiest way to fix the problem has been to unplug the print server and let it refresh.  I need a permanent solution and an explanation of the problem.  Does the print server cache addresses and fill up over time?

Hi, check out the support page at linksys, and look if there is a Firmware upgrade for your linksys printserver.. If there is a new one, flash your printserver's bios with the new firmware.
