I have a low end Samsung Laser printer – ML-1865W and a Netgear router. I have no problem setting up the printer to work wirelessly. But when I reboot the router the printer goes permanently offline requiring me to reinstall it.
I think it is been reissued a different IP by the router. This is not really a great idea as you have to connect the computer to the printer by USB during the set up process and we have more than one computer.
There is the option to change TCP/IP settings from Receive IP address automatically (DHCP) to use a static IP.
Even the network setup guide says the IP address will change if the access point has reset.
I am not really familiar with networks but feel the problem is the DHCP. Has anyone any suggestions for settings to keep this printer working through router reboots and is this a normal?
