We have a very simple setup:
1 laptop computer
1 wireless router
1 wireless printer
The router says the wireless printer is 192.168.1.2
When we turn on the laptop computer, a ping to the wireless printer (192.168.1.2) initially gets no reply, and we can't print.
About 1/2 hour later, it starts working, a ping gives us a reply, and we can print.
Why do we have to wait 1/2 hour? How can we speed this up? What's going on?
