      does the new black sky router allow wireless scanning /printing

      Hello people. I am in distress.

      I bought a new HP C4580 all in one 4 days ago. It all got going fine, printing etc on my sky wireless network (new black router) apart from I could not activate the scanner from the PC software or scan to pc from pressing buttons on the machine. It would start to scan then the machine froze as did the software on the pc and up come a load off useless erros......

      Now then - I changed over to my Belkin modem router to try it and the new scanner/printer all started to work and communicate perfectly with out a hitch. ( I would stay on the Belkin router but it seams to cut off my phone line whilst its online. A bit weird so I cant stay on the belkin, maybe its faulty?.

      So My question to you tecnical people is - Should the Sky modem router be able to cope / communicate with the all in one printer scanner? In particular - the scanning part. Also There only seams to have 2 usable ethernet ports on the rear. Is that an issue?
      Please please help me..

      Regards,

      Dan

      Ok, so that sorts out the ports now do you think the new sky router should work ok with the HP c4580 wireless all in one printer / scanner?
