Do you have your drivers installed properley? Does it assign the same IP Address or a different one each time? You may have to set the IP to static instead oF DHCP. The best thing to do first would be to print out the printers config and figure out what you IP Address, Default gateway are etc.

Let me know how you get on

I *think* they meant P703W or P713W, but without clarification from the poster, that's strictly conjecture.  :)

Here are the wireless setup instructions for the P703W:

Your wireless router is most likely set for some form of encryption (and if it isn't, you'd better do it now). In that case the printer needs to be set up with the correct details. The setup instructions give details on how to do it.

According to the specs the P703W only supports 802.11b and 802.11g so your wireless router must be set to support that.

I assume the P713W will be similar.
