Wireless printer quandary
Posted on 2016-09-16
I had to replace my router (with a Netgear N300), and when I went to reactivate my wireless printer, it wouldn't print. So I went to the wireless setup in the printer, and got it connected with the correct IP address and password. It tells me it's connected with the right IP address, and the green light is on.
I delete the printer from the Windows list of devices and start over with "Add a printer". Windows finds the printer, with the correct IP address, and I highlight it and press 'Next'. After a long delay, I get a message that the printer "Can't be found on the network".
How can it be that Windows can 'see' but not 'find' the printer on the network. What do I need to change.
