Printer works fine from Windows 7 machine, but not from Windows 8 machine, since I upgraded my router
Posted on 2014-09-19
On my home network I have 2 computers plugged into a 4 port router, and an HP Officejet Pro 8600 printer. The printer stopped working (jobs in the print queue just waited, with no status, and no printing) from the Windows 8 machine since I upgraded the router to a wireless one (everything still connects through ethernet though).
I tried removing the printer from Windows 8 and now when I search for new devices it's unable to find it. I tried changing the IP address assignment on the printer's settings from auto to manual, but that didn't help (I've changed it back). It still works ok from the Windows 7 machine.
Does anyone know how to proceed, to get the WIndows 8 machine working with the printer? Thank!
