post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, im not very good at this networking side, but a problem i cant over come on my own , basically we had a wireless lexmark printer, the wireless network was fine but the thing couldnt feed paper for ****!!, so any who ive got a new wireless printing hp c4380 printer.

The paper feed is suberp and it looks the part, ive connected it to my pc (where is practially below the router) no problemo, but im trying to connect it to my dads, ( which is about 15 meters away through about 4 walls ), i had no problem with the lexmark, but every time i even TURN on the hp printer the wireless connection vanishes, ive tried everything a novice would try really, hard ressetting the router,modem and wireless adapter, rebooting and so on and so on, im at a loss, any ideas ?

Which computers lose the connection? All of them? Or just your father's?
Also, does it wirelessly connect to your PC, or does it connect to the router as a network printer?

So the printer connects wirelessly to your computer via some sort of extra adapter? Or does it connect directly through your wireless internet card somehow?

The only thing I can think of is there must be an IP address conflict somewhere. If you can find out from the manual or website if the printer has a permanent IP address, or if it supports some kind of automatic configuration, that could help solve the problem.
