      Wifi printer problems

      With my old router[Belkin] my HP wifi printer worker perfectly well with the laptop downstairs.
      Now, the printer recognises the router and says it is network ready but I cannot get it to print from the laptop - just says "error".
      Has anyone else had this problem and managed to sort it? [seems silly having a wifi printer and having to take laptop upstairs and connect it by cable!]

      Re: Wifi printer problems

      Set one up recently for my doctor with no issues, what IP is the printer on and when you had the belkin were you with sky or another provider as some have different IP/ Gateway set ups and you you may find you have to adjust the printer settings or your firewalls if you have any on the PCs.
