      Activate link status? Printer help

      Hello!

      I am hoping someone here can help me, I am not very technically minded myself. I am trying to set up a Canon mp600r on my home network wirelessly. With some effort and a lot of time I have managed to get to the stage below, where the computer appears to see the printer but the sky router does not. I think I need to activate the link status - can anyone tell me how to do this or what else may be wrong?

      Thanks in advance

      P.S the computer "communicates" with the printer, but when it looks for the printer on the access point it doesn't find it

      Re: Activate link status? Printer help

      I'm no real expert but I think the Default Gateway setting (39) may be wrong - I think it should be the router address which is 192.168.0.1. It would also be a good idea to set up the printer MAC address and IP address as a reserved address in the LAN IP set up in the router. This should prevent conflicts if you connect more than 2 PC's to your network.

      Otherwise it looks to me as though you are nearly there!
