I have recently swapped out a switch at my job. I have no issues with my computers but both of my ip printers are down and not working. I have checked the printers settings and they both have ip addresses but yet I have been unable to print any test pages. Could anyone guide me as to what to do?

If you are using DCHP, the Printers might have a different IP than they did with the old switch, and the computers are sending the print files to a wrong IP.

Try giving or using the printers default names,instead of the ip's.

tried no luck but what i did come across was restarting the print spool on the server deleting everything in queue and it all came to life.
