    Wireless Printer

    My wireless printer stopped printing and I have traced the cause it to the IPAddress of the printer to the desktop computer. The Lynksys wireless router can see the printer IPAddress and the printer port is set correctly on the desktop computer. I have tried pinging the printer but receive "time out" errors. I run ZoneAlarm for my firewall protection and the IPAddress for the printer is "trusted".

    Any suggestions,
    John

    Re: Wireless Printer

    Have you tried mapping the printer port/ip with the router's virtual server?

    Re: Wireless Printer

    I finally was able to ping the printer after having shut down the computer overnight. I went through the same steps as I previously mentioned and it worked.

    Regards,
