I have a small peer to peer 10/100 network. I have just changed my broadband provider and although I can see and connect to other pc's on the network, the copier/printer which is also on the network cannot be found or added to the network for use by all users

Help please

Jerry,

Likely when your network was changed over your DHCP scope changed and thus forced your subnet to change along with it. I would suggest printing out a network configuration page from the RICOH printer and determining what IP address it is using. After this has been established determine an available IP address on your new network and then reassign a static IP to that printer that corresponds with the new subnet.
