Network Address for printer

by 808James / October 19, 2015 10:23 PM PDT

I recently disconnect my router and cancelled my ISP , as I can connect wirelessly to another connection.
However, my printer was connected to the router and now shows up as 'offline' - I cannot print. I suspect that I need to change my settings, but don't know how to troubleshoot this. Can someone walk me through the necessary steps?

Re: router

If you turn on your router it should connect to your printer again, even when not connected to the ISP. Then you can print.

Then tell your printer about the new router to connect to. That's exactly the same as you did when you connected it to your old router. No need to duplicate the part of the user manual you already followed.

Then when it works, you can turn your old router off again.

Well if you printer is wireless then

you have to go to the windows add printer and search for the device on the wireless network. If it finds it ti will something like Epson3640 or whatever model you have. You will have to connect the printer to the wireless network also byt selecting the name of the wireless network.
