I have connected the printer and printer driver to the network, but it is now not allowing me to print anymore. I have also set the printer as the default printer?

Are you printing directly to the printer using it's ip address or through a print server?

Have you restarted PC and printer?

Does it work for other computers?

Can you ping the IP of the printer if applicable?

Make and model of printer?
