    Hi

    I need some more details.

    Which version of Linkskys router?
    Which operating system?
    Which computer
    How many computers do you have connected to the router?
    Does your internet work again when you unplug the printer from the router?

    Figured it Out

    Ok, I figured it out. I had to setup the LANsettings directly from the printer, not from the computer.
