Trouble Networking Setup

  1. Hi! I hope someone can help me with this problem. Here goes.

    A: I have a Canon IP6700D printer install on a network with 3 PC's

    B: the original was setup with a DLink router and a netgear print server PS121 (all wired) and everything was working fine.

    C: I since got a Laptop for my Daughter and changed my DLink router for a Linksys WRT54GX2 Wireless router and now I can't get the Netgear print server to work at all.

    I've been trying for almost 2 months to get this going. I have changed the Lynksys back to the DLink and it works but as soon as I change back to Linksys it won't work.

    Anyone with any ideas
    Thanks Rosko

    Have you tried changing the Linksys router back to it's default settings? The printer is essentially seen as another computer with it's own IP address

    No I haven't. I'm not to sure how to proceed with reset? Will do some reading
    Thanks Rosko

    There is a reset button ressessed in a small hole in the back of the router. Use a paperclip to push the button for a few seconds
